Out of health and safety concerns for our students, faculty and patrons, Theatre UCF has made the necessary decision to present several free virtual readings that will take place throughout the fall semester. More information on performances this spring will be announced soon.
A modern retelling of the Greek tragedy Medea through the lens of the Mexican immigrant experience, the play follows the lives of an immigrant family surviving in Chicago during the Obama administration. It offers an in-depth look at the struggles that go into achieving the American Dream, and the cost of each step along the way. Murder, betrayal and brujeria abound in this human journey towards success and acceptance.
Amplify, Empower, Illuminate: Four Plays With Many Diverse Voices
This reading is part of a series to highlight the urgent push for racial equality and social justice that is at the heart of the current anti-racist movement. This artistic response to current events brings to life contemporary plays that address the issues of injustice, police brutality and systemic racism against people of color. Each play in this series will be followed by a talkback with the creative team and guest speakers.
