Genre: Classical
A Production of Mainspring Collective, Produced by Ernest Tollja

Mainspring Collective is proud to present a new conception of the original text of Euripides' Medea, conceived by Hilary Krishnan, a graduate of the celebrated Indiana University Theatre program, and co-produced by The Producer's Club.

Mainspring's Medea will have the flair of 1950's Americana, the chorus as a bunch of gossipy suburban housewives and Medea as the out-of-towner who doesn't quite fit in. "We will question family as the most valued institution and explore American ideals through the conventions of the play and its universal themes-- family, betrayal, jealousy and love," said Krishnan.

Hilary Krishnan, Jenna Weinberg, Hannah Smith, and Laine Bonstein formed Mainspring Collective in early 2007 in order to present work that spans a breadth of history, breathes fresh life into classical material and ignites the forward movement of the New York theatre community. Their premiere production is not one to be missed!
