A Beach, or a Strange Place Called Grief

A Story of Grief and Self-Discovery by Radial Theatre Project

When Eurydice died Orpheus was so overcome by grief that he descended into the underworld to bring her back. He charmed Cerberus and Hades himself into letting his lover live again and only failed because of his own doubt. It’s this loss on which this play is based, a feeling so intense “all the rules are changed.” Zinnie Harris wrote the story of Robyn and Helen, two lovers who get marooned after a boating accident and are forced to confront their grief.
