Medea

February 1 @ 8:00 PM - February 2 @ 8:00 PM

$25

By Euripides
Translated by Michael Collier and Georgia Machemer
Directed by Sylvia Blush

Medea follows a wife’s calculated desire for revenge against her unfaithful husband. Medea uncovers our worst fears, and when combined with its psychological plausibility, makes it as terrifying today as it was almost 2,500 years ago.

Saturday, Feb. 9, 2019, 2:00 p.m., 8:00 p.m.

“Medea’s acts may be monstrous, but the woman who performs them is a mass of confused impulses and thwarted drives that elude easy categorization.” — Ben Brantley, The New York Times

“Of all the scary characters in Greek tragedy, Medea is surely the most terrifying and the one who gets most disturbingly under our skin.” — Charles Spencer, The Telegraph
