  • The Eurydice Project

Theatre, Stage & Film

Eurydice, one of the beautiful nymphlike daughters of Apollo gave the phrase 'don't look back' particularly poignant meaning in the mythology of ancient Greece.

Orpheus fell in love with her, and they married. However, one day, after being pursued, she stepped on a viper and was extinguished.

Orpheus, grieving violently and twisted with sadness, would do anything to get her back...including making a deal with Hades, he of the underworld.

A barter was reached. Eurydice would return to the land of the living, but Orpheus must always walk ahead of her...never to look back.

This modern, radical take on this tale told previously by Virgil, Ovid and Plato will be positively explosive, thanks to live music written by Jane Deasy and performed by Crash Ensemble's Alex Petcu and a visual cacophony on the stage, with incredible lighting and set design.

This fresh take on a dusty classic comes from the mind of writer Joanna Crawley, who will ensure you bring the drama of Greek gods and goddesses home with you after witnessing this unparalleled production.
