The modern retelling of the classic Greek myth takes place in the Trojan Center Theater.
The Troy University Department of Theatre and Dance presents its fall play, “Eurydice,” Sept. 26-27 at 7 p.m. and Sept. 29 at 2:30 and 7 p.m. in the Trojan Center Theater.
Eight TROY students will participate in the play, including lead performers Madeline Hill, Jacob Brooks and Baine Ellis.
“’Eurydice’ by Sarah Ruhl is a contemporary retelling of the ancient Greek myth in which a young couple, Orpheus and Eurydice, fall deeply in love and marry,” said director Quinton Cockrell, Associate Professor of Acting. “When Eurydice unexpectedly dies on their wedding day, Orpheus is driven by his immense grief to rescue his bride from the dark forces of the underworld. Poignant, heroic and oddly comic, ‘Eurydice’ creatively explores memory, loss and the enduring power of love.”
Tickets cost $10 for the general public and $5 for individuals with a TROY student ID.
