Medea

A Greek tragedy by Euripides
Mainstage
April 18-20 and 25-27 at 7:30 pm

Directed by Brian Fruits

The history is that Medea saved her future husband while destroying her own family. Now, married to Jason, she finds that he has betrayed her love and abandoned their children. In a desperate and powerful act, she kills her own sons. Justifying her barbaric acts with tragic poetry is Euripides' particular genius that gives the story shape and emotional power. This Medea has haunted Western theater for 2,400 years, presenting one of the strongest female characters ever to appear on stage.
