Rice University is proud to present Eurydice, Sarah Ruhl’s beautiful reimagining of the classic Greek myth of a young girl who travels into the underworld to reunite with her father. When Eurydice’s husband, Orpheus, risks his own life to enter the depths of Hades to rescue her, Eurydice must make a choice between following Orpheus back to life or remaining with her father in her new home. Eurydice is a love story of sacrifice, the battle between life and death, and a raining elevator, taking place in a hell where the devil rides around on a tricycle.
