Medea and Jason have escaped the worst. After a harrowing journey across the Mexican–American border, the couple has made it safely to the States, where they can work toward a better life for their family. While Jason is convinced the future looks bright, Medea fears a darker fate as they face the challenges of living without documentation.


With poetry, humor, and heart, Mojada is a bold new telling of a story as old as tragedy itself. Blending Euripides’ classic with Mexican folklore, MacArthur Genius Award-winning playwright Luis Alfaro examines the tragedy behind America’s immigration system and the destiny of one family caught in its grip. A stirring drama about love, immigration, and sacrifice, Mojada combines ancient storytelling with the most pressing issues facing our country today, following a young Mexican mother who gives up everything to bring her son to America, only to find America demands even more.

True to the original Greek tragedy, the play includes mature situations, violence, adultery, and the murder of a child as well as adult language in both English and Spanish. Mojada is recommended for adult audiences.
