From Nov. 12 to Nov. 21, the South Puget Sound Community College (SPSCC) Theatre Collective will be performing Eurydice by Sarah Ruhl at the Kenneth J. Minnaert Center for the Arts Main Stage.
The play is based on the Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice. On their wedding day, Eurydice dies and is sent to the underworld. Orpheus goes after her and is given permission to bring his wife back on the condition that they do not look at each other until they reach the overworld. The couple look at each other before then, trapping Eurydice in the underworld forever. Ruhl’s version explores Eurydice’s time in the underworld, her relationship with her deceased father, and uses water as an extended metaphor for memory and transformation. The SPSCC Theatre Collective is excited to present Eurydice to the community.
Admission will be a suggested $10 donation at the door. Proof of vaccination and face coverings will be required to attend. More information, including performance dates and times, is available on the college’s Arts & Entertainment page.
