About this show

Newly translated by Nicholas Rudall, this new version of Euripides' Greek tragedy is presented by the American Theater Company. MEDEA is the powerful and startlingly contemporary story of a woman overcome by rage and her desire for vengeance after her husband leaves her for the daughter of Creon. The King of Corinth, fearing Medea's magical powers, banishes her from Corinth. Her plan for revenge is a shocking act of sacrifice. Starring the mercurial Carmen Roman in the title role and featuring Mary Ann Thebus, this is an incredibly powerful story of love, jealousy, and revenge.
