A Devised Adaptation of “Medea” by Euripides, created by Touchstone/Moravian MFA students Abbie Jean Litman (director) and Matt Prideaux (designer)
This adaptation of the classic Greek tragedy Medea is an interactive, immersive theatre experience, telling the story of Medea, a former princess/powerful sorceress, from her perspective. Her husband, Jason, has abandoned Medea and their two sons to marry King Creon’s daughter. Afraid of Medea’s future interference, Creon banishes her and her children; however, not before giving Medea the opening she needs to enact plans for survival.
Content Warning: During this performance there will be scenes that contain domestic violence and gaslighting that may evoke uncomfortable emotions.
