THE STORY: Marcus Sharp is a charismatic and enigmatic New York actor who recounts in gruesome detail how his obsessions with a wealthy doctor named Jason and the myth of Medea lead to horrific, unspeakable events. At once ancient and contemporary, this provocative ninety-minute mono-thriller is Grand Guignol horror in the style of Spalding Gray.
“ANOTHER MEDEA is the sort of theater experience that has you wanting to stop listening…while you’re aching to learn what happens next. You need to find out if it’s even more horrific than what has just preceded it. It’s a tale that if told around a campfire would keep everyone awake for the rest of the night.” —Huffington Post. “[ANOTHER MEDEA], expertly penned by Aaron Mark, is detailed, funny and horrifying. A perfect mixture of crime drama, horror and humanity. …one of the most gripping, fascinating stories…I’ve ever witnessed.” —TheaterPizzazz.com. “Medea is inherently upsetting, but what makes this variation particularly disturbing is how damn relatable Marcus is—and disarmingly funny, too. He really puts the me in Medea.” —Time Out NY. “Aaron Mark’s ANOTHER MEDEA is as intense and gripping a show as you’re ever likely to see, a harrowing examination of Euripides’ Medea myth, set in modern-day New York City.” —TWI-NY.com.
