Eurydice is a re-imagined tale based on the myth of Orpheus, a musician who falls in love with the title character. She dies, and Orpheus goes into the underworld to bring her back. The tale is told from Eurydice's perspective as she decides whether to return to the world above or stay in the underworld with her loving father.
Sarah Ruhl created the production, and Kathi E.B. Ellis directed Eurydice. Hallie Dizdarevic stars as Eurydice, Scott Davis is Eurydice's father, Joel Mingo is Orpheus, Michael Mayes is Lord of the Underworld, and Clay Marshall, Ben Unwin, and Scott Goodman are Stones (essentially, a Greek Chorus.)
