Kill your Darlings – Wera Herzberg reads from her unpublished manuscript
Report on the theater performance “Medea” from the perspective of the leading actress. It's the role of a lifetime. She plays Medea – probably the most radical of all female characters. Sorceress, king's daughter and abandoned wife who becomes the murderer of her own children.
Before and during the theater performance, fear of failure alternates with euphoria. Memories of the rehearsals, her own life and her motherhood arise and cause her to waver and despair.
