PUTNEY >> The Apron Theatre presents Sarah Ruhl's "Eurydice," which re-imagines the classic myth of Orpheus through the eyes of its heroine.
On the day of her wedding, Eurydice falls victim to a tragic accident that sends her hurtling into a wonderland of Underworld. Ripped from her beloved Orpheus, the greatest musician in the world, Eurydice is reunited with her dead father in the Land of the Dead. Orpheus journeys to retrieve his bride, but Eurydice has begun to discover that the cost of living again can sometimes exceed the cost of staying dead.
Full of dark humor, lyrical beauty, and wit, Eurydice transforms a traditional myth into a visceral, contemporary meditation on love worth grieving for.
Directed by Karla Baldwin, Eurydice will be at Next Stage on Aug. 13 at 7:30 p.m. and Aug. 14 at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. It will also be presented on Aug. 18, 19, and 20 at 7:30 p.m.
