The Chorus

 

It’s a surprise party gone wrong. A contemporary mash-up of ‘Medea’ and media— where the Greek myth meets Facebook addiction. In this world, the characters obsess over online acquinatances and celebrities they barely know, watching their every move, commenting from behind a touch screen. What happens when real life Greek tragedy shows up in their living room? A cutting-edge, Facebook-fueled, funny, physical, awkward, and at times shocking production made for the 2013 Mackay Festival of Arts.
