Custom Made Theatre Co. presents the San Francisco premiere of Eurydice
. Acclaimed playwright Sarah Ruhl's inventive, visually breathtaking retelling of the Orpheus myth takes the story in intriguing new directions by focusing on the musician's doomed lover Eurydice and setting the action in the modern world. In Ruhl's adaptation, Eurydice wanders off on her wedding day, enticed by a letter from her deceased father. She finds herself reunited with her father in an absurd underworld, but must re-learn human language in order to remember all she left behind. Playwright Ruhl is a MacArthur "Genius" Grant winner, and her plays The Clean House
and In the Next Room
(or The Vibrator Play)
were Pulitzer Prize finalists.
