My overall impression

Jason & (Medea) is a love story, a hate story, and a compelling comtemporary trip through Greek mythology. (Think Charles Mee’s Big Love or Sara Ruhl’s Eurydice.)

Paul Culos and Jessica Pohly are commanding and captivating as the titular characters, taking us for the ride on their literal and emotional journies. The dialogue is as sharp as Medea’s knife, and I look forward to finding a copy of the script to catch all the references I missed when multiple actors are speaking simultaneously in the epilogue.

With a smart as hell script, great direction, and a kick butt cast of five fierce actors, this dark comedy is a must-see for anyone who likes a little bit of modern in their classics.

To Richard!

A world premiere from Hollywood and Edinburgh Fringe award winner Jessica Durdock Moreno. A white lady and a Latino man cross paths in the woods of Connecticut. Chaos ensues. Hilarity abounds. There may be hugging. Discount code HUG for $10 tickets.
