Ruhl’s imagination explodes on the stage in this fantastical retelling of the myth of Orpheus. Eurydice follows the story of Orpheus’ lover as she falls in love only to die on her wedding day. After falling to her death, Eurydice travels to the underworld, where she meets her father and struggles to remember her lost love. A visually dynamic and inventive story, Ruhl’s world features raining elevators, a room made of string, talking stones and letters sent through the earth via worms. This contemporary retelling of a timeless love story will take your breath away.
