Divorcification: Medea Reconstructed

by Gary Ferrar

directed by Gary Ferrar

Nanda Abella as Medea 

DIVORCIFICATION transports the timeless tale of Jason and Medea into our attention-torn society, where newer is better and technology encourages simultaneous human connection and disconnect. Though this year marks the 2,443rd anniversary of Medea’s first performance, its themes of divorce and immigration confront us on an increasingly frequent basis. In this modern treatment, Jason teaches computer science at Baruch, while Medea is a pharmaceutical representative from South America. As their marriage disintegrates, so does the reality of the play, until we are left with an exposed wasteland of theater – a wandering stage manager, off-kilter projection feeds, and live network television – until Medea, and her son come face to face with the dangers of life without a support network.
