A scorching tale of passion, love, and vengeance. When her husband is granted permission to marry another woman, Medea is banished from her home and sent away from her young children. Unhinged by grief, she lays plans for swift and terrible retribution, leaving catastrophe in her wake. A towering figure in Greek tragedy, Medea remains an enthralling character centuries after her creation. MEDEA: "Let no one think me a weak one, feeble-spirited, A stay at home, but rather just the opposite, One who can hurt my enemies and help my friends; For the lives of such persons are most remembered."
