"Medea's Got Some Issues" is the English version of the hit parody from Spain. The title character is an unemployable Latina Diva who presents, more than 2,400 years after the premiere of the original Madea and without inhibitions, the mitigating and sordid factors surrounding her infamous case, from the sexual haste of her husband, Jason, to the misogynistic and xenophobic environment of classical Corinth.
This performance at Instituto Cervantes is an encore presentation of the play. "Medea's Got Some Issues" previewed at Teatro Luna in September 2012, and recently won Best International Show at United Solo Festival, Off Broadway.
