DALKEY TOWN HALL
TUESDAY 25TH – FRIDAY 28TH FEBRUARY 2020 • 8.00PM
What it’s about:
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.
With contemporary characters, ingenious plot twists,
the play is a fresh look at a timeless love story.
Ms. Ruhl’s quirky contemporary meditation on a
much-meditated-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.
Who’s in it?
Dermot Byrne, Sarah Coughlan, Maria Fitzgerald, Fiona Keane,
Alice Meehan, Alan Nuzum, Conall O’Bealóin
with Siobhan Caskie, Barry Donaldson, Emma Mulligan and Brian Nutley .
