Not Medea

A tired, over-stressed mother finally gets an evening to herself. Her activity of choice? A relaxing trip to the theater. She arrives late, shakes off her wet umbrella, stashes a container of food beneath her seat, then looks at the program: she’s about to watch Medea. But the classic Greek tragedy about the sorceress who took revenge upon her cheating husband by killing their children is not what this mother wants to see. As she stands up to leave, however, the play sucks her in, and soon she hijacks the story to tell her own story, one of love, lust, motherhood, and forgiveness. This inventive reinvention of the classic tale not only breaks the fourth wall, it rolls around in the pieces it creates, involving much of the audience and causing the house lights to remain on for much of the performance.
