Don't miss Eurydice, running February 7-10 and 14-17!

Clayton Community Theatre announces Eurydice, by Sarah Ruhl, directed by Jessa Knust. This "weird and wonderful" (New York Times) adaptation of the Greek myth of the musician Orpheus and his wife, Eurydice, ruminates on love, loss, and the power of memory. Unlike most re-tellings of this famous myth, this play is told from Eurydice's perspective. When Eurydice meets an untimely death on her wedding day, she travels to the Underworld and loses her memory in the River of Forgetfulness. She encounters her father, who has retained his memory. With his assistance, Eurydice regains her memory of the life that she once lived and rebuilds her relationship with her father. Meanwhile, Orpheus determinedly tries to make contact with his wife. He eventually makes his way to the Underworld, where he convinces the Lord of the Underworld to permit him to take Eurydice back. Torn between her love for her husband and her father, Eurydice must decide if she will stay in the Underworld with her father, or return to her life with Orpheus. 

What happens next challenges us to examine what we believe about the power of love and memory.

The rest of our exciting season includes...

Biloxi Blues by Neil Simon, directed by Sam Hack. May 2-12, 2019. This well-known play, the second in Simon's semi-autobiographical "Eugene trilogy" centers on Eugene's observations of the contest of wills between his drill sergeant and an intellectual recruit at a Biloxi, Mississippi army base in 1943. Along the way, he loses his innocence in many ways. It is both a reflection on prejudice and and people's reaction to prejudice, and also hilariously funny from beginning to end, and it is the winner of multiple Tony awards. CCT will complete the Eugene trilogy with Broadway Bound in the 2019-2020 season. 

Clayton Community Theatre performs in the South Campus of Washington University in Saint Louis (the former C.B.C. High School), 6501 Clayton Road, 63117. Click the map graphic for details. There is a large lot for free parking west of the entrance.
