by Sarah Ruhl. Directed by Ian Nicholson.

Hades echoes with the drip drip drip of the River Styx. Helps you forget who you were, who you knew, who you loved. Eurydice is in Hades now. After dying too young on her wedding day, Eurydice journeys to the underworld, where she reunites with her father and struggles to remember her lost love. Sarah Ruhl reimagines the classic myth of Orpheus through the eyes of its heroine.

Each year the Department stages a season of plays closely tied to its academic and practical work.
