Synopsis: “Claire Zachanassian, the world famous billionaire, is returning to her small hometown of Güllen after 45 years away. The town was once a thriving, prosperous area, but has since fallen on hard times. The impoverished Güllenites look to Claire as their only hope to save them from ruin. Her offer, though, comes with a price: justice. Claire will donate one billion dollars to the town if--and only if--they kill Alfred Ill, Claire’s former lover who abandoned and betrayed her all those years ago. Friedrich Dürrenmatt’s The Visit is a piercing, darkly comic story of a scorned woman’s ultimate revenge, exploring what dark deeds a desperate man can be pushed to.” ~ https://stageagent.com/shows/play/12545/the-visit

Synopsis: “Devoted wife and mother Medea will make any sacrifice in order to support her husband, Hason, in his dream to make a better life in the United States. After a perilous and traumatic crossing from their home in Zamora, Medea, Hason, their son Acan, and their servant Tita, arrive in Los Angeles. Hason is hired by the wealthy and powerful construction magnate Armida, and she determines to marry him - and get Medea out of the picture. Medea, driven to madness by her husband’s betrayal, murders Armida and Acan in a devastating act of vengeance.
Luis Alfaro’s lyrical and provocative adaptation of the Greek drama Medea re-frames Euripdes’ narrative in the complicated landscape of present-day Los Angeles. Alfaro’s Medea - an outsider like her ancient namesake - is as beautiful and vicious as ever. A touch of magical realism elevates this classic examination of “otherness,” made more complex by the matters of class, economic power, cultural identity, and legality that follow immigrant communities over the borders they cross.” ~ https://stageagent.com/shows/play/21249/mojada
