Have you ever wondered what a director brings to the process of making a play?
In May, Vermont Stage Company will produce 1 play, except it will be divided it into 3 parts (beginning, middle, and end). Assigned 3 different directors with 3 different casts to explore the wildly different ways a play can be brought to life for an audience!
This year, we are exploring the varying directorial approaches to the play EURYDICE by Sarah Ruhl (playwright of THE CLEAN HOUSE). In this reimagining of the classic myth of Orpheus, the tale is told through the eyes of its heroine. 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, and ingenious plot twists, the play is a fresh look at a timeless love story.
