DETAILS:








The Department of Drama presents Jean Cocteau's "Orpheus" directed by Tim Chamberlain. Orpheus descends into Hell for Eurydice. Death allows Eurydice to return to escape with him on the condition that Orpheus does not look back at her. Therein lies the rub. Love, hope, mercy and faith are put to the test in this modern re-telling.

Tickets: $12 full price, $8 for senior citizens and CUA alumni and $5 for students.
