Theatre Morgan presents Robinson Jeffers' adaptation of Euripides' MEDEA Directed by Dwight R.B. Cook
The Greek classic about the sorceress Medea
who is exploited, deceived and abandoned along with her children by her
husband, Jason. Jason has taken a new wife for economic and social
standing in the city of Corinth. Medea's response to this betrayal is at once
fascinating and frightening.For her own
preservation and the protection of her children she summons the assistance of
the goddess Hecate for justice. Though set in 431 B.C., this
fantastical and mystical production is the universal and timeless story of a
woman who sacrificed all for h er husband, only to be betrayed. Tyler Perry's "Madea"
may be "no nonsense," but Euripides' MEDEA truly proves that "Hell hath no fury
like a woman scorned."
