A modern-day adaption of Euripides' seminal tragedy, the titular character of Medea is transformed into Marabella Puro, an immigrant nanny stowed away by her boss in an apartment in Pacoima after becoming pregnant with his child. "Marabella" explores what it means to be a female immigrant in the U.S. today: the hardships, sacrifices, and concessions needed to survive, fin acceptance and love, all while being made invisible in plain site.

YOU ON THE MOORS NOW
Director: Jamie Cayer
Stage-Manager: Daniella Silva
Lighting Designer: Robert Hill-Guarino
You On the Moors Now follows the stories of Jane Eyre, Pride and Prejudice, Wuthering Heights, and Little Women, but if the women had said no. This feminist adaption reimagines the characters as modern versions of themselves. Setting the play in a mix of time periods, I played with a combination of the characters' original time period and our present.
