Mojada: A Medea in Los Angeles
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.
