Eurydice is a modern and poignant retelling of the Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice. When his new bride dies tragically, Orpheus sets out to find her in the Underworld, and bring her back. However, in the Underworld she has been reunited with her dead father, and is torn between leaving him and returning to life with Orpheus. The play is a meditation on love and grief, told with playwright Sarah Ruhl’s distinctive quirkiness and heart.
Old Academy’s amazing cast includes Matthew Thompson as Orpheus, Samantha Simpson as Eurydice, Michael Tarringer as Father, Natalie Bonacci as Loud Stone, Natalie Pendergast as Little Stone, Michael Jeffrey Cohen as Big Stone, and Timothy Schumann as Nasty Interesting Man/Child.
Eurydice — Old Academy’s 516th production (and 96th season) — is directed by Jane Jennings & produced by Jennifer Sivers/Roberts & Michael Roberts.
