An inventive take on the classic myth, Eurydice is by the highly-acclaimed US playwright Sarah Ruhl and includes magical, dreamlike surrealism, lyrical beauty and heart-rending pathos. Eurydice is in love with Orpheus. Her dead father has advice for her wedding but his letters can't get through to the land of the living. At last one does. With her father's words in her hand, she crashes down a flight of stairs and wakes in the underworld, her memory wiped. How will she ever get home? With a style that is light and precise, but also wildly imaginative, this play sees Alice in Wonderland meet Greek myth. Eurydice is a playful and highly original take on a timeless tale of loss, grief and redemption. When she received her MacArthur Foundation 'genius' grant, she was given this verdict: "Sarah Ruhl, 32, playwright, New York City. Playwright creating vivid and adventurous theatrical works that poignantly juxtapose the mundane aspects of daily life with mythic themes of love and war."
