"The daughter of light and her legendary lover venture once again into the midnight city in Eurydice Ascending, a new play by Christian Leadley. Drawing on the Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, this emotional, witty, and highly physical new play explores themes of self- acceptance, maturity in the modern era, coping with loss, the fear of inadequacy, and never abandoning hope. Set partly in the underground EDM club scene, Eurydice Ascending features a soundtrack of popular Dubstep and Progressive House music, with original remixes by British DJ, Rick Sargent. Filled with heart-pounding action, breathtaking visuals, and explosive choreography Eurydice Ascending is a fresh and thought-provoking new spin on a classic tale that will grab you by the heart and never look back."
