By Euripides

Medea, former princess and sorceress of Colchis and wife of Jason, finds her status threatened when Jason casts her aside for Glauke, a young princess of Corinth. Anxious about what she might do, King Creon of Corinth banishes Medea and her two sons from the city. Medea begs—for the sake of her sons—for one more day in the city. Her plea granted, she sets in motion a series of events that sate her passion for revenge over the wrongs done to her—but at what cost?


Thursday, Friday and Saturday performances take place at 7:30pm.

Sunday performances take place at 2:30pm.
