UK: Drum Theatre Plymouth & tour, 2010


By Sarah Ruhl

Alice in Wonderland meets Greek myth in this playful, heart-breaking American take on a timeless tale of loss, grief and redemption.

Eurydice is in love with Orpheus. Her dead father has advice for her wedding but his letters can’t get through to the land of the living. At last one does. With her father’s words in her hand, she crashes down a flight of stairs and wakes in the underworld, her memory wiped as clean as glass. How will she ever get home?
