The New England premiere of 'Entangled' is Salem Theatre Company's latest offering, written by SSU alumnus Leah A. Miles and directed by the very charming and talented Nate Bertone. STC's relatively new space has been transformed in to a cabin in the woods, decorated with a balance of childhood knick-knacks and cubist birch trees that multiply in to the darkness. The set is truly spectacular and as you enter you are encouraged to explore, ensconce and set yourself up in seats that are within the kitchen, living room and bedroom of the house.Read More

In an ancient challenge to patriarchal oppression, the Greek tragedy MEDEA tells the story of an abused and abandoned woman driven to bloody, shocking revenge. Medea, a brilliant, flawed protagonist, is frustrated at every turn as the powerful men in her life betray her trust and splinter her family. Adapted by British dramaturg and playwright Ben Power, known as “the National Theatre’s secret weapon,” this 2014 translation presents a lean, unflinching look at Medea’s defiance.
Bertrand states of the relevance of the play, “It’s been two thousand years since Euripedes first penned Medea and yet women are still stuck every day navigating a society optimized for men. The play grapples with tropes that resound across the centuries: domestic violence, subverting gender roles, and the decay of once-healthy communities.”
