Lipscomb Theatre: Medea
Lipscomb Theatre presents:
This modern adaptation of Euripides' "Medea" retells the classical Greek myth of the title character, a foreign yet powerful enchantress, and her husband Jason, a renowned war hero. The play picks up after their escape to a new country since Medea is wanted in her own country for treason against the royal family. Even though the pair have children together, Jason's financial and political desires push him to pursue a new wife, leaving Medea in danger of both losing her family and exile. As this stirring play unfolds, Medea's desperation leads to an unfathomable revenge. First produced in 431 B.C., "Medea" features themes we still face today, including the value of communication, the importance of forgiveness, and the downfall of vengeance.
Advisory: Contains adult content and themes.
