“Mojada: A Medea in Los Angeles”
Nov 4 to Nov 26, 2017 at At Portland Center Stage. (An OSF production)
Written by Luis Alfaro | Directed by Juliette Alexandra Carrillo
Music and and Sound Design by David Molina
In this retelling of Medea seen through the lens of immigrants to the United States, playwright Luis Alfaro blends tragedy, wry humor, Mexican folklore and a bracingly modern setting to unleash the power of Euripides’ ancient tale of love, transformation and betrayal. A co-production with the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, Mojada comes to Portland after a triumphant six-month run in Ashland.
In this xenophobic anti-immigrant climate, this Theater production is so important. Please come out and see it! As one of characters says in the play “They can never build a wall big enough. They never will, but they will always try.”
