Snakes is a retelling of the myth of Medusa and Perseus. The play introduces Medusa's serpentine sisters, Stheno and Euryale, and the three women struggle to define monsterhood, mortality, and how to move forward when their circumstances are utterly changed.
I produced a lightly-staged version of Snakes for FronteraFest 2023. FronteraFest is a coproduction of Hyde Park Theatre and Scriptworks in Austin, Texas.,
The cast was:
Medusa - Sara Scheidt
Stheno - Rachel Bird
Euryale - Jade Kelly Connaughton
Perseus - Phillip Trieu
