Mojada: A Medea in Los Angeles
May 14, 2021 - Jun 13, 2021
A timely adaptation of the ancient Greek tragedy
After a harrowing immigration journey across the border, Jason, Medea, and their son's lives should be looking up. Jason quickly adopts the look, language and aspirations of his new country. He has found steady work and his boss promises a bright future. But Medea is traumatized and has already sacrificed everything – only to find that America demands even more.
Blending elements of Mexican folklore and spirituality with the stark realities of the present-day United States, playwright Luis Alfaro's stunning modern retelling unleashes the power of Euripides' ancient tragedy of transformation and betrayal.
