Opening January 2015!

PAP Social Media Farnsworth

“Rhapsodically beautiful… an inexpressibly moving theatrical fable about love, loss and the pleasures and pains of memory.”

- The New York Times

The classic myth of Orpheus and Eurydice is reimagined in this contemporary story, as seen through the eyes of its heroine. After a tragic accident on her wedding day, Eurydice travels to the underworld where she is reunited with her much-loved father. Guided by a chorus of Stones, Eurydice must learn to accept the harsh rules of death as she struggles with a new language and haunting memories of her beloved husband. With ingenious plot twists and breathtaking visual effects, EURYDICE is a poignant love story about life, loss, and unthinkable choices.

January 17 – February 1, 2015

Preview January 16

Running Time: approximately 90 minutes with no intermission

Age Recommendation: While this play is appropriate for most ages, it’s themes of love, death, memory, language and music will most likely be appreciated by those 12 years old and older.
