In her 2005 play Eurydice, Sarah Ruhl re-imagines the classic Greek myth from its heroine’s perspective. After dying on her wedding day, Eurydice finds herself in the underworld, her memory washed away in the River of Forgetfulness. She reunites with her father, matches wits with three petulant Stones, and struggles against the Lord of the Underworld. Ruhl’s play is a fresh and lyrical look at a timeless love story.
