On a mythical Caribbean island, circa 1890, PECONG -- adapted from on the Greek Play Medea -- tells a poignant tale of music, magic, laughter, betrayal, sex, power and revenge! Mediyah is a high priestess of exceptional magical power.  She can give, and she can take away…well, that is until she falls in love with Jason, reducing her to a mere mortal, ultimately forcing her to choose between love and revenge.  Join the TWAS Classical Actors of Color as they share the stage with celebrated film, television and stage actress Phyllis Yvonne Stickney as she takes on the role of the Great Granny Root, in this wonderful adaptation of the classic tale.
