"Amazing sight. She's a barbarian."
Sideshow Theatre Company presents the Chicago premiere of Pulitzer Prize nominee Janet Burroway's Medea with Child. Unleashing Euripides' tragedy on a modern, magical, lyrically soaring stage of physical and verbal athletics, this wildly witty retelling blasts down to the core of the Greek classic Medea. When her husband strays from their marriage, Medea's fury unleashes a storm of epic proportions on both family and country. Can the characters escape the fate that awaits them? And what will be left if they can?
