The Southwestern College Campus Players will present “Eurydice,” a play by Sarah Ruhl, at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and at 2 p.m. Sunday in the Helen Graham Little Theatre on the lower level of the Christy Administration Building. Admission is free for Southwestern College students and employees.
According to director Joshua Robinson, in “Eurydice” 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 lost love. With contemporary characters, ingenious plot twists, and breathtaking visual effects, the play is a fresh look at a timeless love story.
“‘Eurydice’ has been an exciting challenge for the cast and crew,” Robinson said. “We have had the opportunity to explore this play through the processes of physical theatre — where movement and devised work help to forward the story of this incredibly moving play.”
