Esteemed playwright Sarah Ruhl has reimagined this classic myth from a feminist perspective, giving the title character the power to control her own fate, except Eurydice has just died on her wedding day, and having been dipped in the River, no longer remembers the people she loves most. Somehow, she must choose between eternity in the Underworld with her birth family, or returning to Earth, for a second chance at life with the family she hopes to establish. This is a story about looking back while moving forward, and couldn’t be a more perfect play for the last-ever play in Strider Theater.

Support provided by Colby’s Cultural Events Committee, Center for the Arts and Humanities and Classics Department.

There will be a reception after each performance.
