Euripides’ classic Greek tragedy- Medea, in a new adaptation by Ben Power, coming to the USVA theatre this June!

Abandoned by her husband, Medea, struggles to save herself and her two sons from exile and, in result, the shaming of her and her family’s name. Blinded by grief and heart-break, she plans a bloody revenge on Jason which she carries out with almost merciless determination.

Medea is a story that still remains disturbingly modern and familiar for its readers and audiences. Its questioning and discussion of the eternal problems linked of revenge, family, gender and fate, Medea remains as relevant to its modern audiences as it did thousands of years ago in Ancient Greece, leaving us questioning the real speed of development in our world.
