About this show

By contrasting the character of Medea with the public tragedy of Britney Spears, Medea/Britney uses multimedia elements to explore themes of proper femininity, the performative properties of public female bodies, and the mythology of motherhood. The one-person show relocates Medea's story to Spears's bathroom in 2008 when, at the height of her highly publicized breakdown, she locked herself in the bathroom with her children. Subsequently, she was hospitalized and an ongoing conservatorship was granted to her father. The show juxtaposes Medea's decision to carry out the murder with Spears's choice to return the children, considering the women's respective punishments.
