The Greek tragedy Medea is reborn through the experiences of a young immigrant family living in modern-day Los Angeles. Shrouded in evocative mysticism, this tale of love, loss and transformation pulses with an escalating sense of danger. In this fresh retelling, Medea and Jason grapple not only with their own star-crossed marriage, but with the weight of the sacrifices demanded in the battle between assimilation and tradition.
Running time: 1 hour, 30 minutes. Performed with no intermission.
