La Llorona/Medea is the classical Greek tragedy of one woman's horrible crime, spurred on by jealousy and rage told through the mirror of the Latino folktale, La Llorona, the weeping woman. Part tragedy, part ghost story, La Llorona/Medea is a scary story to tell in the dark, Hell has a fury like a woman scorned, and it is Medea. This play has adult themes.

Because Beowulf Alley engages a talent and volunteer pool that calls Tucson "home" for its productions, the Theatre is committed to helping grow a new generation of Tucson talent with its programs including education for adults and youth, late night theatre to experiment with and gain experience, readers theatre for playwrights' unpublished works, lunchtime theatre to bring art to the workday and screenings of independent film artists. And true to its roots, the Theatre maintains ongoing dialogues with the community, including Dialogues with theatergoers after the first Sunday matinee performance of each of its main stage plays, at Readers' Theatre nights, and other presentations, providing an opportunity for theatergoers to discuss the plays with the director and artists. Writers who cover the Tucson arts scene say the Theatre provides its audiences with "the best total package"-plays, performances and productions that are high in artistic and technical quality.
