Love and loss in ‘Eurydice’
Colorado Mesa University theater department’s production of “Eurydice” “will be a masterpiece of technical theatre,” a news release said.
The memory play written by Pulitzer Prize nominee Sarah Ruhl will be performed at 7:30 p.m., Wednesday through Saturday, April 16–19, in Robinson Theatre at the Moss Performing Arts Center, 1231 N. 12th St. It will be the final production of CMU’s 2013–14 season.
“Eurydice” is a “contemporary look at the myth of Orpheus and re-tells the story from the perspective of his wife, Eurydice, with her descent into Hades,” the release said.
In Hades, Eurydice “learns about love and loss, and wrestles with the decision to return to earth with her husband or to stay in Hades with her father.”
“Eurydice” will be directed by Jerry Ditter, CMU’s technical director. David Cox is the set designer for this production and created a raining elevator and a running river and pool. He also introduces projected virtual actors and a raked stage.
The play is rated PG. Tickets cost $20 for adults, $15 for seniors and $6 for students. Tickets can be purchased at coloradomesa.edu/mosstickets or by calling the box office at 248-1604.
