Skidmore Theater Presents: American Medea

The opening of the Skidmore Theater Department’s fall main stage production, American Medea, is quickly approaching, and tickets are currently on sale. The show, written and directed by the department’s new artist-in-residence Holly L. Derr, runs November 14-16 and November 20-23.

This provocative re-imagining of the Medea myth plays out deep in the heart of Texas. When a media circus descends on the rural cow town of Corinth, TX, to cover a gruesome filicide, a community must confront its own expectations and prejudices about motherhood, identity, and gender roles in a post-modern world. American Medea is an unflinching collage of story and culture, a new American myth based on our own contemporary Medeas.
