Not Medea -The Play
Art House Productions is proud to announce its winter main stage production of Allison Gregory’s Not Medea, directed by Adin Walker. Performances run, December 6th, 7th, 8th, 13th, 14th, 15th at 8:00pm, and Sundays, December 9th and 16th at 3:00pm for a total of eight performances.
In Not Medea, an exhausted working mother escapes to the sanctuary of the theatre and encounters a play she desperately doesn’t want to watch. Allison Gregory’s Not Medea is a refreshing take on an old story and gives its audience a much needed perspective on the trials and tribulations of motherhood in the 21st century. A synthesis of myth/magic/real world, Not Medea is a fierce slap-down about love, lust, motherhood, and forgiveness.
