STRUAN Gets Staged Reading at NYU Tisch

STRUAN Gets Staged Reading at NYU TischMedea Gets 21st Century Adaptation with a Twist in Struan In Struan, Scottish playwright JD Stewart gives the classic Greek tragedy, Medea, a bold and battering 21st modernization...with men. Struan's husband, Jason, has left him for a new bride, Sophia. Rather than fall foul to heartbreak, Struan exacts a plan of revenge on his ex-husband, their shared two children, and the new bride in the form of murder. Struan's Nanny and Publicist play integral roles in a love triangle while also acting as a traditional Greek chorus.

The story, like Medea, ends in blood and death. Struan was originally developed in the Steinberg Theater Lab at Tisch School of the Arts at New York University under the guidance of acclaimed playwright, Eduardo Machado. Ashley Wren Collins (Flak House) directs. Struan features a racially diverse cast: Bob D'Haene (Who's Your Baghdaddy?), Max Woertendyke (A View from the Bridge), Chris Perfetti (Picnic), Ralph Adriel Johnson (Bull), Mbali Guliwe (Peter and the Starcatcher), Melle Powers (The Old Friends), and Marguerite Stimpson (The Elephant Man).

The staged reading of Struan will take place on Tuesday, August 9th, 2016 at 7:00pm in the Goldberg Theatre at the Tisch School of the Arts, 721 Broadway, 7th Floor. The theater has air-conditioning and a light reception will follow. RSVP to: jds799@nyu.edu
