About this show

Since the dawn of literature, a lady called Medea - best known as the sorceress who married Jason of the Argonauts and the murderess of her own children - has been terribly misunderstood. Though she has inspired artists of every persuasion - Pasolini, Delacroix, Graham, Callas, Sarah Bernhardt and Britney Spears, she still suffers - after 2,500 years - an ashamedly bad rap. Ryan Landry - Grande dame of the New England underground stage plays the slighted strumpet in his adaptation of the play. He has no plans to change MEDEA's methods - however he may help in bringing to the legend of her madness that ever so slight breath of understanding she so richly deserves.
