UIL High School One-Act Play
By Sarah Ruhl
In this version of Eurydice, Sarah Ruhl reimagines the classic myth of Orpheus through the eyes of its heroine. On the day of her wedding, Eurydice falls victim to a tragic accident that sends her hurtling into a wonderland of an Underworld. Ripped from her beloved Orpheus, the greatest musician in the world, Eurydice is reunited with her dead father in the Land of the Dead. Orpheus journeys to retrieve his bride, but Eurydice has begun to discover that the cost of living again can sometimes exceed the cost of staying dead.
