“Love is a big, funny word”

It’s Eurydice’s wedding day. Having made it down the aisle to Orpheus, she leaves her wedding party and trips and falls… all the way down into the Underworld. After a dip in the river of forgetfulness, she can’t remember her own name, never mind Orpheus. Discovering a chorus of stones, a tyrant on a tricycle, and her father in a room made of string, will Eurydice find a way to break the rules of the Underworld? Will love triumph over death?
Following Orlando, two-time Pulitzer Prize finalist and Tony Award nominee Sarah Ruhl and Artistic Director Stella Powell-Jones reunite. Refocusing the classic myth on its heroine and her surreal descent to the land of the dead, this fresh look on a timeless love story asks what happens when we die, and what happens when we live.
