The Last Play Ever at Strider Theater!

Friday, April 28 and Saturday, April 29 at 7:30 p.m.

Directed by John D. Ervin and Kaylee Pomelow Book '19

Esteemed playwright Sarah Ruhl has reimagined this classic myth from a feminist perspective, giving the title character the power to control her own fate, except Eurydice has just died on her wedding day, and having been dipped in the River, no longer remembers the people she loves most. Somehow, she must choose between eternity in the Underworld with her birth family, or returning to Earth, for a second chance at life with the family she hopes to establish. This is a story about looking back while moving forward, and couldn’t be a more perfect play for the last-ever play in Strider Theater.

Farewell to Strider: A Hybrid Current Student/Alumni Show and Alum Gathering - An event to say goodbye to the beloved theater space on the weekend of the 46th anniversary of its dedication.
