Coeurage Theatre Company presents:
Vendetta Chrome
By Sylvan Oswald
Directed by Sara Lyons

Lex Theatre - November 24th-December 15th

Vendetta, a late bloomer at a Victorian girls' school, must save her friends and her family from a legacy of trouble -- and it's all in the dance moves. In the West Coast premiere of Sylvan Oswald's melodrama-farce, spirited movement sequences by Milka Djordjevich (Anthem) meet today's feminist rage. Director Sara Lyons (I'm Very Into You) leads a female and nonbinary cast through the lightness and the darkness. Oswald's Vendetta Chrome is "a saucy spoof on the inane mannerisms of Victorian education for young ladies with a pointed message." (Variety)

Medea/Shulie

with text by Euripides and Shulamith Firestone

Euripides' classic myth of Medea's murderous revenge collides with the work of the late American feminist activist and author Shulamith Firestone as five young women enact a contemporary ritual of women's rage.
