October 25, 2019 - The King’s College Theatre Department will present Sarah Ruhl’s “Eurydice” at 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 20-23, and 2:00 p.m. on Nov. 23. The tragic story reimagines the Greek myth of Orpheus through the eyes of its heroine, Eurydice.
On the day of her wedding to Orpheus, Eurydice dies in a tragic accident that sends her to the Underworld. Upon arrival, she is reunited with her dead father, but she fails to remember who he is because her memories were lost after she was submerged in the river Lethe. With the help of her father, Eurydice gradually pieces her memories back together.
Meanwhile, Orpheus is plotting to bring Eurydice back from the Underworld. Orpheus’ plan will force Eurydice to choose between staying with her father in the Land of the Dead or returning to the Land of the Living with her beloved.
The play will feature actors Annarose McLaughlin (Eurydice), Lakeville; Chip Lemheney (Her Father) Westchester; John Barrera (Orpheus), Ventura, Calif.; Sean Lickers (A Nasty Interesting Man), Wilkes-Barre; Ashley Surdovel (Big Stone), Topton; Leah Peters (Little Stone), Wilkes-Barre; and Jessica Sudano (Loud Stone), Milford.
The George P. Maffei II Theatre is located in the Administration Building on North River Street.
