The day we went the play was sold out. Be sure to check before you go if you think you can just walk in and they will have tickets, not necessarily so.

My girlfriend and I attended this event and enjoyed it a great deal! The actors were talented. The stage set was good, and the seats were good also. We are thinking of going again!

It managed to be too cold and too precious at the same time.

Eurydice is a tragedy, it's challenging material. But still there were some clever lines and a few good laughs.

Joe. D. Lauck plays Euridyce's father, and he is charming.

More Information


Victory Gardens’ season opens with a major revival of Eurydice, a fresh take on the Greek Orpheus myth by Evanston native, Pulitzer Prize nominee, and MacArthur Genius award winner Sarah Ruhl. Eurydice’s wedding to Orpheus is cut short when she wanders after a man bearing a letter from her dead father. Her disappearance turns out to be from life itself, when she is transported to the underworld in a raining elevator. A story of love, loss and the mystery of death, The New York Times called Eurydice “weird and wonderful, devastatingly lovely.” From the author of The Clean House, Passion Play, and Dead Man’s Cell Phone.
