Mojada: A Medea in Los Angeles

Tuesdays-Sundays. Continues through Feb. 2
Loretto-Hilton Center 130 Edgar Road, Webster Groves Webster Groves

The ancient Greek tragedy Medea is about a woman who abandons her homeland and family to be with the man she loves (the hero Jason, of Jason and the Argonauts fame). In many versions of the story, Medea is betrayed by Jason and takes her revenge on various relatives of her husband. Luis Alfaro has adapted the old story into Mojada: A Medea in Los Angeles, a modern drama about a Mexican family who flees home to make a new, better life in America. Mojada, her husband Jason and son Acan must deal with the precarious nature of life as an immigrant, the horror of their escape from Mexico and the constant pressures of assimilation, ambition and tradition. The Repertory Theatre St. Louis presents Mojada: A Medea in Los Angeles Tuesday through Sunday (January 10 to February 2) at the Loretto-Hilton Center (130 Edgar Road, Webster Groves; Tickets are $20 to $94.50.

The Thanksgiving Play

Tuesdays-Sundays. Continues through Feb. 9
Loretto-Hilton Center 130 Edgar Road, Webster Groves Webster Groves

If no good deed really does go unpunished, then Logan's new play is doomed from the start. Logan is a working director who wishes to stage a completely unproblematic new production inspired by Thanksgiving. Her cast is ready and eager to mindfully do the work, but how do they stay woke and avoid all of the standard landmines (Native Americans vs. Pilgrims, turkeys vs. industrialized factory farming) with a subject as fraught as first contact between colonizers and colonized? Larissa FastHorse's The Thanksgiving Play skewers the characters' pretensions and the nature of some sort of "traditional Thanksgiving." The Repertory Theatre St. Louis Studio Series presents the satire Tuesday through Sunday (January 17 to February 9) at the Loretto-Hilton Center (130 Edgar Road; Tickets are $46 to $71.
