This play was inspired by Théodore Géricault’s famous 1819 painting, The Raft of the Medusa. When the Medusa frigate ran aground on a sand bank, there were not enough life rafts. 147 people were crammed onto a rickety, cobbled together raft and left to fend for themselves. 13 days later, only 15 survivors were rescued. Raft of the Medusa tries to understand the unimaginable conditions they experienced, as well as why they were mercilessly abandoned to such a cruel fate.
