On Book: Eurydice

Wednesday June 29th - Thursday June 30th, 7:30pm
Whittier Theatre
In the On Book series, island directors gather actors and friends to read new, classic, and prize-winning plays. June's On-Book selection is Eurydice by Sarah Ruhl, directed by Courtney Kessler-Jeffrey. This performance is Pay-What-You-Can

"Eurydice reimagines the classic myth of Orpheus and Eurydice not through Orpheus's infamous pilgrimage to retrieve his bride, but through the eyes of its heroine. Dying too young on her wedding day, Eurydice must journey to the underworld, where she reunites with her father and struggles to remember her lost love. With contemporary characters, plot twists, and a script written to be a playground for designers, the play is a fresh look at a timeless love story."
