This epic Greek tragedy is just as familiar today as it was when originally written. In a political move, Jason leaves his wife and children to marry a princess and align his fortunes with the throne. Betrayed and bereft, Medea enters into a ruthless downward spiral of depravity and madness, determined to achieve her revenge, no matter what the cost.
This production includes violence and adult themes.
