The Zoo Story
A summer afternoon in Central Park, New York City. Like every other Sunday, Peter is sitting on his favourite bench reading a book, when he is approached by Jerry who strikes up a conversation. This is an encounter that will change their lives forever. In this one-act play, celebrated playwright Edward Albee explores different lives in an urban metropolis, our deep need to communicate and connect with other people, and the catastrophic consequences that can ensue if we fail in this endeavour.
Pre Athlone performance Dalkey Town Hall 7th-8th May 8pm.
Eurydice, Dying too young on her wedding day, Eurydice must journey to the underworld where she meets her dead father, encounters the Lord of the Underworld and struggles to remember her husband, Orpheus.
Sarah Ruhl’s Eurydice is a modern re-telling of the Orpheus myth through the eyes of Eurydice. A magical, sometimes menacing, dream-like journey of love, loss and memory.
Eurydice, The Power of Memory to Triumph over Death:
In Eurydice, Sarah Ruhl re-imagines 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, Orpheus. With contemporary characters, ingenious plot twists, the play is a fresh look at a timeless love story.
Sarah Ruhl’s quirky contemporary meditation on a much-mediated-upon story has some of the subliminal potency of music, the head-scratching surprise of a modernist poem and the cockeyed allure of a surrealist painting. It’s pretty funny, too.
Special thanks to:
Fiona Keane and Conall O’Beoláin for their work in the development of this production.
