ACT Theatre 2008
Sarah Ruhl’s modern interpretation of the Greek myth came to ACT in 2008, and is still remembered as one of ACT’s best productions, bringing great beauty and simplicity to the stage. The story is familiar; the journey over the river of forgetting into the underworld in search of lost love, but the imagining was all new. Directed by acclaimed director Allison Narver, this production remains an ACT favorite.
