Dalkey Players, Dublin present
Eurydice By Sarah Ruhl
The Power of Memory to Triumph Over Death: In Eurydice, Sarah Ruhl re-imagines the classic myth of Orpheus through the eyes of its heroine. Dying too young on her wedding day, Eurydice must journey to the underworld, where she reunites with her father and struggles to remember her lost love. With contemporary characters, ingenious plot twists, and breathtaking visual effects, the play is a fresh look at a timeless love story. Eurydice was the 2003 recipient of the Whiting Award for Drama.
The Group was set up 45 years ago and is based in the small town of Dalkey in Co Dublin. In 2017, Dalkey Players won the RTE All Ireland Finals with Sarah Ruhl’s “Dead Man’s Cell Phone” directed by Emma Jane Nulty. In 2016 the Group was Runner Up in the RTE All Ireland Finals with Polly Teale’s adaptation of “Jane Eyre”, directed by Emma Jane Nulty. Dalkey Players brings this production of Eurydice for the first time to Ireland and are delighted to be participating on the Circuit again for 2020.
