Both plays will be presented in repertory at The Wild Project, 195 East 3rd Street, Jan. 14-Feb. 1, 2015.
Another Medea, written and directed by Mark, is inspired by the work of Euripides. The chilling drama, according to press notes, "tells the story of the incarcerated Marcus Sharp, a charismatic New York actor who recounts his dual obsessions with a wealthy doctor named Jason and the myth of Medea and how it leads to tragedy."
The 80-minute play begins previews Jan. 14 at 7 PM, officially opens Jan. 16 at 9 PM and continues through Jan. 31.
Johnson's Devil in A Box, written and performed by Johnson, was originally directed by Libby King. The play is described as such: "For a small town girl from Nebraska, a summer weekend in Paris changes her life forever. A casual flirtation ends in a hospital, a Police Station and the endless confusion of justice in a foreign land."
The 75-minute play will begin previews Jan. 16 at 7 PM, officially open Jan. 18 at 7 PM and continue through Feb. 1. All For One artistic director Michael Wolk said in a statement, “It’s a thrill to kick off our 2015 season with these two taut crime thrillers -- one mythic and mesmerizing, the other terrifyingly true. Both reach out and rivet you – Another Medea with its insidiously accessible and charming portrayal of man inexorably drawn toward a monstrous act of retribution, and Devil in A Box by bringing the tightly-paced suspense of a courtroom drama to its story of sexual assault, the search for justice, and personal redemption."
