Eurydice

February 11, 2017 - 1:00pm
02-09-2017 to 02-11-2017 - Sarah Ruhl’s retelling of the Orpheus myth centers upon his doomed bride, Eurydice, a character whose voice is typically missing from her own story. Whisked down to the underworld on her wedding day, Eurydice tries to make sense of her memories and her passions, and poignantly reconnects with her long-dead father, even as her heartbroken groom seeks to wrench her back into the life she left behind. Ruhl’s atmospheric play combines off-kilter, playful comedy with a wistful yearning for meaning and human connection.

The dynamics of Reid’s world premiere creates a link to the more traditionally-structured works by Guggenheim Fellows Alvin Singleton and Jeffrey Mumford; a funk-inspired piece by violinist/composer Jessie Montgomery (PUBLIQuartet Co-Founder); the improvisations in the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians (AACM) style by Kahil El’Zabar’s Ethnic Heritage Ensemble; and the unorthodox piano trio by jazz and orchestral musician (and Guggenheim Fellow) Olly Wilson who is known for establishing the first-ever conservatory program in electronic music.

King Ferdinand of Navarre’s “no fun” edict includes scholarly endeavors, quiet contemplation and complete commitment to chastity for three entire years. His closest courtiers reluctantly sign on. But this is a comedy and it doesn’t take long for everyone to figure out that the whole thing is a bad idea and rules are meant to be broken—especially when the French Princess and her beautiful entourage arrive on the scene. The young men’s studies soon give way to secret letters and amorous vows as the women set out to teach the men a thing or two about love. The puns fly and the playwright’s wordplay take flight in this witty satire about young love with a surprising conclusion where real-life lessons are suddenly revealed. Former Artistic Director of Canada’s Stratford Festival Marti Maraden returns to Chicago Shakespeare to stage this charming comedy, following her celebrated productions of Much Ado About Nothing and Othello.
