Drama Department Presents Medea

September 9th, 2016 - 10:42am

Written by Euripides 
Translated by Ben Power
Directed by Adrian Elfenbaum

“Terrible things breed in broken hearts.” Western drama’s first feminist heroine, Medea, enjoys renewed purpose in Ben Power’s exciting, contemporary translation. Medea and her ambitious husband Jason ruthlessly sweep through the Greek Isles in their quest for power. With their young sons, they find refuge in Corinth, until Jason forsakes the family for a young princess. Devastated by Jason’s betrayal, Medea consolidates her strength, secures her safety, then destroys both Jason’s present joy and his future hope. Her unspeakable actions define this enduring tragedy for the ages.
