The myth of Orepheus and Eurydice explores the depths someone will go for who they love. In Sarah Ruhl's adaptation there is the added exploration of the love between not just someone you love romantically, but the love between a parent and their child. This play asks what is the true meaning of sacrifice, both as a spouse and a parent. And when the ending isn't what you want, was it still worth the risk?


As always, I am incredibly proud of all the students on stage and backstage, so much of the production is their creation. From building and sewing the costumes, finding the sound effects, writing music, painting the set, assisting with directing and choreography, researching the play and showing up to help make this show a reality.
