In “Eurydice”, Sarah Ruhl reimagines the classic myth of Orpheus 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 past.
Using a unique blend of movement, music and theatrical ingenuity, Custom Made’s production looks to be breathtakinly inventive, funny, and beautiful. The intimate staging at Gough Street playhouse propels the inches-away audience into this “Alice in Wonderland” rabbit-hole of lost memories, unbelievable characters, and heartbreaking passion.
Custom Made presents a new look at this McCarthur Award-winning, and Pulitzer finalist’s, breakthrough play, which helps us to understand what it truly means to love another.
