Eurydice at Longstreet Theatre

University of South Carolina Department of Theatre and Dance presents Eurydice at Longstreet Theatre November 7 – 22. Hailed by The New York Times as one of the best plays of the last 25 years, Eurydice is Sarah Ruhl’s inventive reimagining of a tragic Greek myth from its heroine’s perspective. On the day of her wedding to the musical prodigy Orpheus, Eurydice unexpectedly falls to her death and descends into the underworld. In the Land of the Dead, Eurydice reunites with her departed father and sets off on a journey to remember — and reclaim — the life and love she lost. 2003 recipient of the Whiting Award for Drama.
