Playwright Sarah Ruhl’s Eurydice finds the goddess of Greek myth trapped in a strange underworld. There Eurydice reunites with her deceased father and must decide whether she will remain with him in the underworld or rejoin husband Orpheus on earth.

A staging of Eurydice serves as the final project for Cornell University students enrolled in the Performing and Media Arts course “Making Theatre: Rehearsal and Production Techniques.” The production, directed by Performing and Media Arts professor David Feldshuh, opens November 11 and runs for two weekends.
