The Medea Complex
by Patricia Crespin 
Directed by Sara Guerrero
In tribute to Dia de los Muertos / Day of the Dead, Breath of Fire Theatre presents the world premiere of The Medea Complex –– a loose adaptation of Euripides’ Medea, with a Latina twist.  Medea thrives on the weakness of others and reeks of temptation and doom.  She encompasses all women who stand to be judged for their actions and apologizes for none of it.  Gertrudes is an aging warrior, fighting for her self respect, desperately trying to find it through Medea.  Jason is a greedy fool who manipulates his way in and out of the lives of those who love him and naively brings tragedy to everything he touches.  Throw in a haunting soundtrack and a “kooky” guard and you’ve got The Medea Complex. A BOFLTE New Works Festival Finalist.
