What cause or excuse could any person give to try and justify what is considered to be the worst of all crimes – killing your own children? Based on Euripides’ and Seneca's Greek tragedies, this play from Puerto Rico’s Arte Boricua is designed to humanize, and perhaps understand, a woman that has been scorned through the ages: Medea.

Performed in Spanish with projected English translation.

¿Qué causa o excusa puede dar una persona para tratar de justificar lo que puede ser considerado como el peor de los crímenes, matar a sus propios hijos?  Pabón entrevisto a mujeres que cometieron matricidios para tratar de entender el motivo. Estas entrevistas le ayudaron a la autora para crear el personaje de Medea, de esta manera le provee al espectador una apreciación alternativa.  El público puede dejar la sala sin juzgar las acciones de esta mujer y por el contrario sentir compasión.
 
Realizado en español con proyección de traducción al inglés.
