The Chicago Theater Sweatshop presents Medea's Got Some Issues, "killer, witty, hilarious" take on Euripides' Medea.
Written and Directed by Emilio Williams, author of TABLES AND BEDS (IVP 2011)
Plot: The tragedy of Medea reinvented as a laugh-out-laugh farce? More than 2,400 years after the premiere of her play, Medea, in person, presents, without inhibitions, the mitigating and sordid factors surrounding her infamous case: from the sexual haste of her husband, Jason, to the misogynistic and xenophobic environment of classical Corinth. “Don’t you laugh, this shit is serious.” The play is both a madcap parody and a tribute to Euripidesʼ classic tragedy.
February 25th-March 25th, 2016 at 7:30pm Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at Stage 773
