ABOUT THE SHOW
As a princess of the Southern Caucasus, Medea falls in love with the Greek hero Jason and betrays her family and homeland for him. Years later, living as a foreigner in Greece, Medea is abandoned by Jason and forced into exile. This psychological thriller from the ancient Mediterranean explores alienation, migration, and the circumstances under which people make cruel and irrational decisions, probing the depths of Medea’s humanity… and her inhumanity. In Seneca’s Medea, the journey from sorrow to violent revenge plays out onstage. A new translation by students makes ancient tragedy accessible to modern audiences in contemporary English.
