Suzie Miller‘s Medea takes on Euripides infamous tale of a woman scorned and promises to raise Medea above the ranks of deranged jealousy and tilt a feminist read against it.
When Medea fell for Jason, she fell hard. Hard enough to sacrifice everything to be with him. She deceived her father, committed murder, left the comforts of her homeland and bore him two sons. So when a power-hungry Jason takes up with a younger woman, Medea’s humiliation quickly turns to revenge and a horrible plan is hatched. Nothing is off limits. No one is safe. Not even the children.
Medea was first produced by La Boite, premiering at the Roundhouse Theatre on May 30, 2015.
