This powerful, poetic piece was named one of the Best Plays of the Last 25 Years by the New York Times. Playwright Sarah Ruhl centers her modern interpretation on Eurydice (Rachael Uyeno), the wife of Orpheus (Jeff Brackett), who dies on her wedding day. In the Underworld, Eurydice reconnects with her deceased Father (Paul T. Mitri), but the strands of memory that bind them together pull her farther away from the husband she left behind. With string houses, raining elevators, the Lord of the Underworld (Dezmond Gilla) and talking stones (Therese Olival, Garrett Hols, Kela Neil), Ruhl intertwines themes of love and family with loss and saying goodbye. Eurydice poignantly captures the truth that memories – even the most painful ones – are what make us who we are...and to forget ourselves is to forget how to be human.
