An exhausted working mother escapes for just one night to the sanctuary of the theatre - except the play is one she desperately doesn't want to watch. As the show goes on, she finds herself drawn from her reality into Medea's, even as she draws the audience into her own raw and surprising personal history. Myth and magic meet searing truths about parenting, love, and desire in this story that begins as Medea - and ends as something else entirely.
