Deaf to the warnings of her nurse and chorus, grief-stricken Medea seeks solace in destroying Jason, her unfaithful husband. She ruthlessly severs her husband's lineage only to find herself "alone and forsaken" alongside the man she condemned to desolate solitude. A condensed adaptation of the classic tragedy that effectively explores Medea's disjointed psyche within the context of ancient Greek values.

Published Reviews

"A new voice in the world of the classics has been born."

Judge, UIL Awards (Texas)

"Mesmerizing... Powerful vehicle -- visually and artistically stunning... I knew what was coming, but I couldn't turn my face away. The inevitability of it all was presented with a sensitivity and awareness that was refreshing and special..."
