You guys know Medea, right? Not personally, but as a mythical figure and a Euripedes play? She kills her kids to spite her husband? That one. Okay, so imagine that a character from the play rescues the kids from their mother and accidentally time travels with them to modern-day Maine in the middle of a hurricane? That’s The Children, a brand new play by Michael Elyanow getting it’s world premiere this Saturday at Boston Court. It’s about survival and healing. We’re told it’s “eerily moving.” It sounds awesome. Also there are puppets, which make most things better. When was the last time you went to a world premiere?
World Premiere, Saturday May 12th, 8 p.m.
Theatrical Run: May 12 – June 10
