Coming to Dalkey Town Hall 22nd-23rd February at 8pm
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.
