Great new take on a classic. One of the best companies in town.
Quotes & Highlights
- "It's a satisfyingly revisionist take. Yet, somewhat unexpectedly, Orpheus and Eurydice's youthful passion is dwarfed by Ruhl's more resonant theme of fatherly love. Inspired by Ruhl's own father's early death from cancer, the play is a sweet valedictory to undying parental affection, a bond that, in this case, heroically transcends death." --Los Angeles Times (Critic's Choice)
Written by Sarah Ruhl
Directed by Geoff Elliott
