When Eurydice tragically perishes on her wedding day, her groom Orpheus will do anything to bring her back to life. He strikes a deal with the gods of the Underworld, but will he be able to fulfill its terms? This reimagining of the classic myth is told through Eurydice’s eyes, offering a fresh perspective on her journey. It’s one of love and loss, pleasure and pain. The play’s rhythmic language helps rebuild the memories of the characters and highlights the heroine’s impossible choice between life and death.
"Rhapsodically beautiful. A weird and wonderful new play- an inexpressibly moving theatrical fable about love, loss and the pleasures and pains of memory." - The New York Times
