“Don’t look back.”
This famously unheeded advice has sparked the imaginations of countless artists over the centuries, from poets to choreographers to cinematographers. Pulitzer Prize nominee Sarah Ruhl’s contemporary look at the myth of Orpheus re-tells the story from the perspective of his wife Eurydice, with her descent into Hades where she learns about love and loss, and wrestles with the decision to return to earth with her husband or to stay in Hades with her father. Written by Ruhl after the death of her own father, Eurydice’s poetic style is visually magical and emotionally alluring, providing a fresh look at a timeless story.
