Playwright and actor Sue Jin Song returns to DC for her vivid one-woman show of adolescence, fantasy, and transformation.

After Cynthia’s mother disappears without a trace, the seventeen-year-old Korean-American struggles to excel in school, raise her younger sister Julianne, and meet the expectations of her emotionally absent, immigrant father. Soon Cynthia begins to retreat into the surreal universe of her own psyche, where she encounters familiar figures like Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan. Presiding over it all is Medea, at long last reclaiming her infamous role within Greek mythology.
