One of the most famous tragic love stories of all time, that of Orpheus and Eurydice, is the inspiration for Sarah Ruhl’s beautiful take on the ancient Greek tale, Eurydice. The contemporary play, enters the surreal world of dreams and broaches the topics of love and loss. The Beacon Theatre Workshop has put together an amazing rendition of this potent and moving work of theatre to kick off their season, focusing on mental health: Dreams and Nightmares. The players have pulled out all the stops and Director/Designer Jason Robert LeClair has pressed the limits of what the Beacon Theatre Workshop’s Blackbox space can do with the help of Woonsocket native and Technical Director, Christopher Cournoyer.
This production is not to be missed. For anyone who has loved, lost, or both, Eurydice will touch your heart the way only live theatre can.

In Eurydice, Sarah Ruhl reimagines the classic myth of Orpheus through the eyes of its heroine. Dying too young on her wedding day, Eurydice must journey to the underworld, where she reunites with her father and struggles to remember her lost love. With contemporary characters, ingenious plot twists, and breathtaking visual effects, the play is a fresh look at a timeless love story.

"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
"Touching, inventive, invigoratingly compact and luminously liquid in its rhythms and design, Eurydicereframes the ancient myth of ill-fated love to focus not on the bereaved musician but on his dead bride - and on her struggle with love beyond the grave as both wife and daughter." - San Francisco Chronicle
