Kansas City Public Theatre (KCPublic) will produce Artistic Director Nathan Bowman’s MEDEA: AN AMERICAN TRAGEDY during the 2018 KC Fringe Festival.
The Greek tragedy will play July 21st – 28th at The Arts Asylum with an encore performance August 4th at the outdoor Brush Creek Amphitheater.
From the press release: “An adaptation of the classic Greek tragedy by Euripides, MEDEA: AN AMERICAN TRAGEDY tells the story of a woman who is lured to a new country by dreams of freedom and a new life, only to be deceived, exploited, exiled, and her children used as pawns. Her new land has taken everything from her, now she’s taking it back.”
Directed by Bowman, the production features Erika Crane Ricketts (Medea), Davis DeRock (Jason/Creon)
with Erdin Schultz-Bever, Lauren Pope, Marie Warner, Markeyta Young, and Victoria Kilkenny.
Tickets for the KC Fringe performances are $10. The August 4th performance at Brush Creek Amphitheater is free to the public. For more information on MEDEA: AN AMERICAN TRAGEDY visit kcpublictheatre.org.
