MEDEA'S GOT SOME ISSUES at Capital Fringe Festival, Now thru 7/27
An irreverent and madcap dark comedy inspired by the classic tragedy, Medea's Got Some Issues is the English version of the hit parody from Spain.
No Rules Theatre Company and SPAIN arts & culture present the funniest tragedy this side of Athens! In the DC premiere of Spanish playwright Emilio Williams' award-winning farce, Lisa Hodsoll delivers a side-splitting take on the infamous Greek myth while playing seven characters in an acting tour de force. Finally! We get Medea's uncensored side of the story: the whirlwind romance that drove her to murder her children, the tragedy that is modern theater, and the portrayal of women in the age of Rihanna and JLaw. Medea: Killing it on stage since 431 BC.
This special presentation follows the successful series New Plays from Spain, devoted to presenting staged readings of Spanish playwrights recently translated into English, in collaboration with U.S. theatre companies.
