Rochester University’s theatre department will present “Eurydice,” written by Sarah Ruhl and directed by Hannah Niece in February.

In Eurydice, Sarah Ruhl reimagines 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.

Evening performances of “Eurydice” will be Feb. 7-9 and Feb. 14-16 at 7:30 p.m. while matinee performances will be Feb. 10 and 17 at 2 p.m. All productions take place on the campus of Rochester University at 800 W. Avon Road, Rochester Hills, MI 48307. Tickets are $5 for students and $12 in advance ($15 at the door) for adults.
