Mojada is a re-imagination of Euripides’ Medea transported to Chicago’s Pilsen neighborhood. With her husband Jason and companion Tita in tow, Medea crosses into the United States illegally to escape a past filled with betrayal. Once here, she is caught in a struggle to adapt to the new country and to keep her family from breaking apart. Alfaro’s stunning modern take on the Greek myth tackles American immigration, family, tradition, mysticism and the explosive moment when they all collide.
