About the Play

The first in the Central American series. Relating to poverty in El Salvador currently, and over the course of colonial history; the entanglement of the US and other colonial forces. The play braids Medea and Yerma into one narrative – a domestic worker shares versions of a tale with a bus driver. Medea kills her children, Yerma can’t have them; they both consider the violence against children perpetrated by the government, who force poor women to have hysterectomies against their will.
