As playwright and director Emilio Williams prepares for the Chicago run of Medea’s Got Some Issues, he was interviewed by Maura Junius. Maura studied theater at St. Catherine University and in the MFA program at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale. As the Marketing Director for the Raven Foundation, she has led post-show discussions for the Chicago Theater Sweatshop and AstonRep Theater Company.
