'Eurydice' | Dibden Center for the Arts, Johnson State College | Theater | Seven Days | Vermont's Independent Voice



When: Feb. 11-13, 7 p.m. and Sun., Feb. 14, 2 p.m. 2016

Director Isaac Littlejohn Eddy wants viewers of Johnson State College’s production of Eurydice to “become so involved in the lucid dream we create that they feel they’re part of it, physically and emotionally.” To transport patrons to another time and place, cast and crew employ live video, sound and interactive media in Sarah Ruhl’s retelling of the Greek myth “Orpheus and Eurydice.” Told from the female protagonist’s point of view, Ruhl’s adaptation puts a fresh twist on the tale of two young lovers stuck in separate worlds — one banished to Hades while the other languishes on Earth. Once pulled into this mythological dream world, audience members may never want to leave.

Price: $10; free for students.
