A new retelling of the Medusa myth, this critically acclaimed play written and directed by local theater maker Robin Berl and produced by Theatre Prometheus gives voice to the woman called "monster."

 

STONE RABBITS. STONE ALTARS. STONE MEN.

 

Lost, Medusa—no, Dua—seeks safety in a cave and makes it a home for herself. One where she can defend her sister, give birth, and maybe serve Athena in defending the world against men who would dare to look at women the wrong way.

 

Surely the gods wouldn’t have a different plan for a woman with the power to turn men to stone…

 

"These performances are so affectingly delivered that you will almost certainly be uncomfortable. In thoughtful theater, that is generally a good thing, and in Dua, it makes this production a masterwork." —DC Theater Arts

 

Please be advised this script contains material of a highly sensitive nature, including discussion but not depiction of rape/sexual assault, imagery depicting a male forcibly entering a woman’s home enacting violence against her, pregnancy and childbirth, sexism/misogyny, animal death, and human death.

 

 

**masks are required for all performances**
