Homewood-Flossmoor Community High School will present its fall play, Eurydice, the last weekend in September.
In Eurydice, playwright Sarah Ruhl retells the classic myth of Orpheus 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, ingenious plot twists, and breathtaking visual effects, the play is a fresh look at a timeless love story. The show is appropriate ages 14 and older.
Performances are scheduled for Friday, Sept. 26, at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday, Sept. 27, at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. at the school's Mall Auditorium. Tickets ($8/adult, $5/student/senior) are available now at the school's Campus Store and will also be available at the door. The H-F production will be directed by Jill Bonavia-Galligani, H-F English teacher. Student directors are: Joey Cipriano, Morgan Harvey, Katria Muse, Sydney DuBose, Jace Banks and Jabari Khaliq.
