Details

Two boys emerge from the sea and become engulfed in a world of savage longing and desire. A Woman, Husband, and male Nurse find and care for the boys, who experience sexual awakening amidst a landscape of blurred roles and definitions, where a mother may be a lover, and a boy may be a girl.  Drawing on the Greek myth of Medea, this sharply crafted play examines the role of displaced persons searching for home amidst a culture of brutality.  This world premiere brings the work of luminary playwright Caridad Svich to the Bay Area for the first time.  The stylized, poetic language of Svich’s theatrical landscape carves out each moment with a disconcerting precision.
