“Eurydice” is a modern retelling of the Greek myth of the unending love between Eurydice and Orpheus. Told from the perspective of Eurydice, the play opens with the couple’s declaration of love. Their youthful exuberance is dampened, however, by the death of Eurydice and her entrance into the underworld. There, she is reunited with her father who struggles to restore her memory of those who loved her.
The play will be directed by Trent Blanton. For further information, call 561-297-3810.
