by Euripides

Directed by Brady Ness

Black Box Theatre, Snow Fine Arts Center

February 23, & March 2, at 2:00 pm

A deconstructed modern retelling of a Greek classic, Medea. In this tale, Euripides argues that tragedy occurs when hate become stronger than love. Medea left her family, friends, and country to be with her husband, Jason. He betrays her love by marring another woman. Medea’s plot for revenge includes ending Jason’s happiness and bloodline, which means killing their two children. This stylized piece that incorporates physical composition and movement, and is a highly collaborative, semi-devised piece founded on the original Greek text.

Medea is available through public domain.
