Another MedeaCherry Lane Theatre (38 Commerce Street, New York, NY) Map it $25
In this contemporary gay adaption of Medea, Marcus Sharp, a charismatic and enigmatic, one-time New York actor, recounts, while incarcerated and in gruesome detail, how his obsessions with a wealthy doctor named Jason, and the myth of Medea, lead to horrific, unspeakable events.
Tony nominated, Tom Hewitt plays Marcus and others in this frighteningly provocative, unique, minimalist monodrama. An examination of the use and prevalence of myth in our lives, as well as the dangers of becoming too immersed in a role. Marcus’ tale is the story of the ultimate outsider, and is, at once, ancient and contemporary. Inspired by true events, and the work of Euripides Another Medea could be described as Grand Guignol horror in the style of Spalding Gray.
