A modern-day adaptation of Euripides' seminal tragedy, the titular character of Medea is transformed into Marabella Puro, an immigrant nanny stowed away by her boss in an apartment in Pacoima after becoming pregnant with his child. “Marabella” explores what it means to be a female immigrant in the U.S. today: the hardships, sacrifices, and concessions needed to survive, find acceptance and love, all while being made invisible in plain sight.
