If you’re in DC this summer, you simply HAVE to come see the show I’m producing with No Rules Theatre Co: Medea’s Got Some Issues, by Spanish playwright Emilio Williams.
This is the DC premiere of an award-winning, side-splitting take on the infamous Greek myth, in which exiled Medea avenges her lover’s abandonment by killing their children. It stars Lisa Hodsoll as seven characters in an acting tour de force. Joshua Morgan directs.
I got to see Lisa read this role last fall as part of the New Plays from Spain series, and like the rest of the packed house I was completely blown away. She masters hilarious and heartbreaking – and delivers both within seconds of each other. I am SO excited to work with her and with the whole No Rules team on this full production.
We are co-presenting Medea’s Got Some Issues with SPAIN arts & culture, which is organized in part by the Embassy of Spain’s Cultural Office.
