Sarah Ruhl's "Eurydice"
April 22 - 30

From April 22 - 30, The Independent Drama Society will complete its "season of love and loathing" with Sarah Ruhl's Tony and Pulitzer Prize-nominated "Eurydice."

Artistic Director Lindsay Eagle will direct the production to be presented at The Plaza Black Box Theatre at the Boston Center for the Arts, 539 Tremont Street in Boston’s South End.

In retelling the myth of Orpheus from the viewpoint of his wife, Sarah Ruhl’s tale of memory, loss, and love blurs the line between dream and reality as it invokes a haunting circus world. Appearing Off-Broadway in 2007 at Second Stage, the play was hailed by The New York Times as “weird and wonderful” and “gripping and emotionally potent.”

The cast features: Chris Anton, Cliff Blake, Melissa DeJesus, Zach Eisenstat, Sarah J. Gazdowicz, Coriana Hunt Swartz, Sierra Kagen, Chris Larson, Adam Lauver, Glen Moore, Greg Nussen, Micah Tougas, and Victoria Townsend. The production introduces Annie Winneg as Eurydice.

Originally from Chicago, Sarah Ruhl received her MFA from Brown University, where she studied with PaulaVogel. Ruhl's plays include "In The Next Room (or the vibrator play)," "The Clean House," "Passion Play, a cycle," "Dead Man's Cell Phone," "Melancholy Play," "Demeter in the City," "Orlando," and "Late: a cowboy song." Her work has premiered at Lincoln Center Theater, the Goodman Theatre, Playwrights Horizons, Second Stage, Arena Stage, Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company, Yale Repertory Theatre, Berkeley Repertory Theatre, Cornerstone Theater, Madison Repertory Theatre and the Piven Theatre Workshop in addition to being produced internationally and translated into Polish, Russian, Spanish, Norwegian, Korean, German, and Arabic.
