Audition Notice for Spring 2019 Production of “Eurydice”

EURYDICE by Sarah Ruhl
Directed by Corey Sorenson

(Please note change of title – this will replace the previously announced production of Myth in Performance)

Come be a part of what the New York Times described as “Rhapsodically beautiful. A weird and wonderful new play – an inexpressibly moving theatrical fable about love, loss and the pleasures and pains of memory.” In Eurydice, Sarah 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 performed around the country, as well as off-Broadway, and won the 2003 Whiting Award for Drama.
