Presented by Contemporary American Theater Festival
An Explosive Take on Love and Motherhood
An NNPN rolling world premiere
by Allison Gregory
Directed by Courtney Sale
What if the show you came to see is not the show you need to see? A working mother escapes to the sanctuary of the theater and encounters a play she desperately doesn’t want to watch, so she hijacks the show—and the audience—leading them through her own very personal story. A synthesis of myth/magic/real world, NOT MEDEA is a funny and fierce slap-down about love, lust, motherhood, and forgiveness. And something else entirely.
“Do you remember…the precise moment you fell in love?…The kind that hurts and heals and haunts you like a starved spirit. Like you won’t survive it. Have you ever known that kind of love?”
