Less than a month until the debut of August Wilson’s Seven Guitars, a play that The New York Times has called a “rich music-drenched drama”:
The marvel of Seven Guitars, which is always true of Wilson at his best, is how large a social portrait emerges from seeming small talk: from bickering, joking, gossiping and idle scheming. From such conversation emerges a sense of an entire economic and legal system, stacked unwinnably against the black man; a social structure in which home and relationships are rarely fixed; and a folklore of rhymes and superstitions and recipes that acquire another layer every time they are repeated.

The reviews for Medea’s Got Some Issues are in and, as a certain character might say:
They are greeeeeaaat!
Writing for The Washington Post, Celia Wren calls Medea a “witty solo show” and a “hilarious rant.” Read the full review here.
And on DC Metro Theater Arts, Christina Marie Frank writes:
Director Joshua Morgan and the team from No Rules Theatre Company
create the perfect atmosphere including a fabulous set … The real treat
of this show is to see that fringe is not just for newcomers, but a chance for
seasoned professionals to stretch their wings.
Hodsoll does this brilliantly when she expertly takes us through classical bits of
Euripides, puts on a variety of accents with precision, and makes us laugh at
Medea’s sadly accurate view of sexism. Perhaps her best role is as herself lamenting
the tendency of DC theatre to ignore it’s greatest assets: actresses like her.
Co-presented at the 2014 Capital Fringe Festival by No Rules Theatre Company and Spain Arts & Culture, Medea’s Got Some Issues has just three more performances. Get your tickets now.
The Washington City Paper‘s Rebecca Ritzel says she’s glad she made it to the opening night of Medea’s Got Some Issues. Join us for the next show Tuesday evening!
