Medea

Written by    Euripides
Directed byJeff Grace

Originally produced in 431 BC at the Greek festival of City Dionysia, Medea is a revenge tragedy about love, passion, honor, status, and broken expectations. The play presents Medea, a devotee of the goddess Hecate and one of the great sorceresses of the ancient world, as she plots a grotesque and hideous revenge when her husband, Jason, the Greek hero of the Argonauts, abandons her and her children for a new wife. In this masterly written drama of injured love, themes of sensitivity and suffering culminate in a bloody deed of vengeance. Performed in a new translation by Robin Robertson that explores the beauty of the Athenian language while remaining accessible to a modern audience, the production presents an original and visually stunning take on a well-known tragedy.
