Oregon Shakespeare Festival : Mojada Medea in Los Angeles


Mojada is a modern day story of Medea, her "husband" Jason and their son Acan (played by a fabulous local boy Jahnangel Jimenez). The family together with their longtime housekeeper Tita (Vivis) endure a horrific and harrowing journey from Mexico to reach Los Angeles, seeking a better life. Jason is very ambitious and after a period of working as a day laborer Jason finds a job with a wealthy local builder Armida ( Vilma Silva) herself an immigrant who has done well in the poor neighborhood of Boyle Heights. He spends more and more time away from home working while Medea struggles as a seamstress doing piece work. Sabina Zuniga Varela is mesmerizing as Medea who finds the transition to American life difficult. Jason ( played by Lakin Valdez) tries hard to comfort his wife but is driven to be successful in this new land.

Director Juliette Carillo does a marvelous job of creating the real tension between Medea and Jason. Play-write Luis Alfaro's masterful and thought provoking adaption of the Greek story of Medea tugs at your heartstrings as Medea becomes more and more desperate and Jason betrays her in the most awful way. Medea makes her final devastating and heart braking decision, in the horrific climax of the play.
