A modern retelling of the classic myth of Orpheus who descends into the Underworld to retrieve his young bride, Eurydice, from Death’s amorous arms.  Told from Eurydice’s point-of-view, the story follows her odyssey through the Underworld as she seeks love, meaning, and rebirth.  Visually stunning and poetic, the play mirrors the dreamy and sometimes treacherous landscape of Eurydice’s inner life where she can’t always remember who she is and can’t always recognize the signs along the way.  As Eurydice struggles for self-knowledge, we—like the characters—discover the sacrifices that must be made to achieve a deeply meaningful love, and what happens when love is found, but remains illusory and unattainable.
