Variety calls the play
"…brilliant and bracingly adult…bruising and beautiful, shatteringly funny and devastatingly sad. The play's dialogue has a raw emotionality rarely heard in art or life. It cuts like broken glass…full of bitter, intelligent, unvarnished truth."
Recommended for mature audiences only.
Spring, 2016: Eurydice by Sarah Ruhl, directed by Brian Cook.
The classic Greek myth of the famous musician Orpheus and his wife Eurydice is here retold by one of America's most ingenious playwrights.
The young Orpheus suffers a tragedy when his wife Eurydice dies unexpectedly. While he seeks mystical ways to bring her home, Eurydice lives in the Underworld, redeveloping a connection with her beloved father and avoiding the advances of the strange Lord who controls everything below. When Orpheus finally makes his way to free her, Eurydice is faced with the choice between living with her husband or staying dead with her father.
The New Yorker calls the play "exhilarating!! A luminous retelling of the Orpheus myth, lush and limpid as a dream where both author and audience swim in the magical, sometimes menacing, and always thrilling flow of the unconscious."
