Mojada: A Medea in Los Angeles

November 26 – 26, 2017
On the U.S. Bank Main Stage

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.
