Dying too young on her wedding day, Eurydice must journey to the underworld, where she reunites with her father and struggles to remember her lost love. With contemporary characters, plot twists, and a script written to be a playground for designers, the play is a fresh look at a timeless story. (Description from Concord Theatricals)

Director's Note

This production will always be special to me, not only because of my enjoyment of what has been a rich and rewarding rehearsal process, but also because it is my last as core faculty in Penn’s Theatre Arts program. Eurydice is a perfect retirement metaphor: it is about looking back (and not looking back), as much as it is about looking ahead. Like Orpheus and Eurydice, I am navigating worlds and time in new ways, with an especially rich appreciation of my goodfortune in students and colleagues during the last 23 years at Penn. I dedicate this production to the memory of one of the best and brightest of these, my good friend and a dear and talented colleague: Peter Whinnery.
