On her wedding day Eurydice falls victim to a tragic accident that sends her hurtling on a journey into a wonderland of an underworld. Awakening in a strange new world, she reunites with her father and struggles to remember her lost love. Orpheus journeys to retrieve his bride, but Eurydice has begun to discover that the cost of living can sometimes exceed the cost of staying dead. With contemporary characters, ingenious plot twists and breathtaking visual effects, the play is a fresh look at a timeless love story.
