Mojada will be performed in the Cultural Arts Center on the Montgomery College Takoma Park Silver Spring campus.

Devoted wife and mother Medea will make any sacrifice in order to support her husband, Hason, in his dream to make a better life in the United States. After a perilous and traumatic crossing from their home in Zamora, Medea, Hason, their son Acan, and their servant Tita, arrive in Los Angeles. Hason is hired by the wealthy and powerful construction magnate Armida, and she determines to marry him – and get Medea out of the picture. Medea, driven to madness by her husband’s betrayal, murders Armida and Acan in a devastating act of vengeance.

Luis Alfaro’s lyrical and provocative adaptation of the Greek drama Medea re-frames Euripdes’ narrative in the complicated landscape of present-day Los Angeles. Alfaro’s Medea – an outsider like her ancient namesake – is as beautiful and vicious as ever. A touch of magical realism elevates this classic examination of “otherness,” made more complex by the matters of class, economic power, cultural identity, and legality that follow immigrant communities over the borders they cross.

Mojada is presented by special arrangement with Broadway Licensing LLC, servicing the Dramatists Play Service collection.
