Eurydice

Eurydice

Written by Sarah Ruhl

March 9 - 17, 2019

Exeperimental Media Performance Lab (xMPL)

On the day of her wedding, Eurydice falls victim to a tragic accident that sends her hurtling into a wonderland of an 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, Sarah Ruhl’s Eurydice transforms a traditional myth into a visceral, contemporary meditation on love worth grieving for.

UCI Drama – 2018/19 Season

“Against All Odds”

History provides countless examples of individuals, communities, and nations facing desperate, unjust, and even seemingly impossible circumstances; yet somehow, time and again, they find the will and the means to overcome. These are the stories that make great theatre, and indeed, that keep us personally inspired and hopeful in difficult times. As citizens of this particular sociopolitical moment, when we are bombarded from every outlet to the brink of despondent apathy, we invite you to join us in living journeys of those who were faced with substantial adversity, but survived – and thrived – against all odds.

- Gary Busby, Drama Chair/Producing Artistic Director
