There are many myths that tell the story of Medea. The history is that she 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. Medea has haunted Western theater for 2,400 years, presenting one of the strongest female characters ever to appear on stage.
"If you're a lover of Greek drama or Jean Anouilh, this production serves both well." - The Topeka-Capital Journal
