For lovers of classical theater and the morbidly curious alike, The Classic Theatre presents the truly twisted yet strangely empowering Medea. Written by Euripedes, the Greek tragedy centers on the myth of Medea and Jason, wherein the former, scorned by the latter, exacts revenge by murdering her own children and “the other woman.” Cheery shit, right? In context, the actions taken by Medea reveal a deeply individualistic spirit and a kind of deliriously powerful sense of self-worth that proclaims: My life and liberty are more important than anything, even my kids.
