MEDUSA UNDONE coming soon!

PANNDORA PRODUCTIONS presents the West Coast Premiere of ~

"MEDUSA UNDONE" by Bella Poynton

directed by Sonja Berggren

Chosen from last year's PANNDORA'S BOX FESTIVAL OF NEW WORKS, MEDUSA UNDONE brings us a theatrical retelling of the little known Medusa origin story. Before she was one of the greatest mythical monsters of all time, Medusa was a kind, beautiful sea-nymph in Athena's service. Unparalleled in both her beauty and devotion to the Gods, Medusa catches the eye of the charming but narcissistic Poseidon. Interested only in the passions of the spirit, and not the flesh, Medusa feels she has no choice but to reject the greedy God. For this, she not only suffers violence at the hand of Poseidon, but also incites a deep-seated jealousy in Athena, with horrific and disturbing consequences. MEDUSA UNDONE explores how rape culture reverberates through the ages, and calls out attention to the great injustice suffered by female victims of abuse.  [pen and ink drawing by Madeleine Bellwoar]
