The University of Portland is set to perform Sarah Ruhl's play, "Eurydice." The play will be directed by JoAnn Johnson and will feature student actors. Sarah Ruhl takes the well-known myth of Orpheus and flips the script by centering the plot around the perspective of Eurydice, Orpheus' lover, instead. During the play, Eurydice dies and falls into the underworld during her wedding to Orpheus. Upon entering the underworld, she sees her dead father who, against the rules of the underworld, has maintained his use of language. What follows is a story about love and loss as Eurydice and Orpheus try to find their way back to each other in this unique take and perspective on a well-known Greek myth.
