In this semi-staged production of Ricky Ian Gordon’s Orpheus and Euridice, enter into a modern reimagining of Virgil’s classic myth of love, loss, and beauty by setting it within the context of today’s #MeToo movement. What if it wasn’t a snake that attacked Euridice? What if she didn’t die and descend to Hades, but instead the world as she knew it crumbled around her after a sexual assault, becoming her own personal living hell? What can Orpheus do to try to rescue her from a situation she can’t find words to express? How can goodness and beauty come out of all this suffering? There is a powerful message of hope and strength in this piece. Join us for our musical journey.
