A very gay male nurse, on roller blades.
A New York drag queen with a strong Brooklyn accent.
Everyone else, except Aegeus, has Texas
drawls. She chain smokes throughout the play, has very large hair,
unkempt and rather wild looking, and is wearing an old bathrobe.
Clearly past her prime.
Three ladies doing their nails under hair dryers. They are pushed
onto the set on a cart labeled "Greek Chorus"
Manager of the Trailer Park.
Enters in a wheelchair eating a bag of fried
chicken and fries.
That smooth cad. He is pushed on and offstage on a handcart. He wears
tight pants, a muscle shirt and a cowboy hat.
A used-car salesman from California. Enters carrying a cardboard cut-out
BARBIENIA and KENDOLL:
(Puppets, Children of Medea.)
Dressed in black.
Simply put… Euripedes classic play, a la white trash.
The action takes place in Medea Park, a trailer
park in Corinth, Texas, on the steps of Medea’s Winnebago. Entrances and
exits will be accomplished by various wheeled vehicles, the actors being
carried on and off the stage by stagehands wearing black.
