CCM’s 2018-19 Studio Series presents Sarah Ruhl’s ‘Eurydice’

Presented by CCM Acting, this play re-imagines the classic myth of Orpheus through the eyes of its heroine

CCM kicks off its 2018-19 Studio Series with Sarah Ruhl’s retelling of Eurydice Oct. 11-13. Dying too young on her wedding day, Eurydice must journey to the underworld, where she reunites with her father and struggles to remember her lost love. With contemporary characters, ingenious plot twists and breathtaking poetry, the play is a fresh look at a timeless love story.

Susan Felder, CCM professor of acting and movement, directs the production. In her director’s note, Felder explores the theme of grief in Eurydice:

“The play is adapted from a myth by the Greeks, who believed that after we die, we travel through a river that washes and rids us of burdensome memories of life and loss. The play offers us just that proposition. What if we could rid ourselves of the passage through grieving times? What if it were that easy?” Felder asks.

Performances of Eurydice take place Oct. 11-13, 2018, in CCM’s Cohen Family Studio Theater. Admission is free, but reservations are required. Tickets become available at 12:30 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 8. Visit the CCM Box Office or call 513-556-4183 to reserve. Limit two tickets per order.

On November 17, CCM and the Cincinnati Opera will also present an operatic version of this play, featuring music by 2018 MacArthur Fellow Matthew Aucoin. Admission to this Opera Fusion production is free, but reservations are required.

Physicians are encountering a growing number of younger patients who are testing positive for hepatitis C virus (HCV) fueled largely by the opioid crisis impacting communities around the country. That increase and more effective and tolerable drug regimens for HCV infection, means one-time universal screening of all adults for HCV is now cost effective and recommended, say physician-researchers in the University of Cincinnati (UC) College of Medicine.
