EURYDICE – Theatre UBC
6354 Crescent Road
— SHE WENT TO HELL. HE WENT TO GET HER —
by Sarah Ruhl
directed by MFA Candidate Keltie Forsyth
Presented by the Department of Theatre and Film at the University of British Columbia
Haunting, evocative, and minimalist; this contemporary American retelling of the Ancient Greek Orpheus and Eurydice myth is a fairytale for those who still believe in them. Eurydice’s father has been writing her letters from Hades, but when a dangerous stranger tempts Eurydice with the details, she is soon sent tumbling after him. Orpheus goes to get his girl but both must follow the underworld’s rules in order to find their way home.
The award-winning Sarah Ruhl is one of America’s sharpest stage voices; her writing is alert, engaging, and utterly arresting.
