Medea | Productions : The Kalamazoo Civic Theatre


2005 - 2006 Production


Written over 2,500 years ago by the Greek playwright Euripides, this brutal tale of betrayal and revenge is as fresh and startling as tomorrow's headlines. Vanity and the promise of fame and fortune drive Jason to leave his wife, Medea, for a young princess. As she clings to her ideas of romantic love and self-sacrifice, Medea's world quickly disintegrates and, with nothing left to lose, she goes to unthinkable lengths to punish her unfaithful husband. This devastating and gut-wrenching theatrical descent into the dark side of human existence serves as a reminder that many horrific human acts are born out of desperate situations.
