Mojada is a stirring drama about love, immigration, and sacrifice, inspired by the Ancient Greek story of Medea. This play masterfully combines ancient storytelling with the most pressing issues facing our country today, following a young Mexican mother who gives up everything to bring her son to America, only to find America demands even more. With great poetry, humor, and heart, Mojada is a bold new telling of a story as old as tragedy itself.
