Theater Department’s Eurydice, This Weekend

Come see the Theater Department production of Eurydice, starting tonight and going all weekend:

Jean Anouilh’s adaptation of the Greek classic myth of Eurydice and Orpheus sets the story among a troupe of actors in 1930s France, in a train station of a provincial town. Orpheus, a traveling musician, meets eyes with Eurydice, an actress weary of her surroundings, and at once, they fall irreversibly in love. The story follows the young couple as they are confronted with the unexpected compromises of adulthood and forced to reconcile with maturity and pain. This epic work combines magic and realism to ask eternal questions about life, death, and most importantly, love.

Directed by Assistant Professor of Theater Yuriy Kordonskiy, the production features a cast and crew of Wesleyan University Theater students. Performances take place Thursday – Sunday, February 26 – March 1 at 8pm and Saturday February 28 at 2pm at the CFA Theater on the Wesleyan University campus.
