“It’s OK, darling—Daddy’s here for you. We’re in hell, by the way.”

Playwright Sarah Ruhl’s modern take on the classic Greek tale of Orpheus and Eurydice involves talking rocks, elevators full of rain and the Lord of the Underworld riding a tricycle. UNM’s Department of Theater and Dance took on the production under the direction of Matthew Lee. The result, writes Alibi theater critic Christie Chisholm, is “one of my favorite pieces I’ve seen so far this year.” Read more about it in her review of UNM’s Eurydice, and check out the last showing tomorrow night at 7:30 p.m. at Theatre X in UNM’s Center for the Arts.
