Directed by Fiona Walsh
Performed in Mill Theatre Studio from Sunday 10 to Wednesday 13 April 2011

Fiona Walsh directed 'Medea', the Greek Tragedy by Euripides in the studio space at the Mill Theatre. The play tells the story of the revenge of a woman betrayed by her husband.


Euripides' Medea is one of the most powerful and shocking Greek tragedies.

In a story which centres on the jealousy and revenge of a woman betrayed by her husband, the leading figure Medea sacrifices everything for her husband Jason and is devastated to find out he has now forsaken her to marry a younger princess.

However 'Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned' and Medea proves she will stop at nothing to seek revenge on Jason.

Euripides' Medea is one of the most powerful and shocking of all the ancient Greek tragedies. The Greek mythological woman, Medea, was the daughter of King Aeëtes of Colchis, niece of Circe, granddaughter of the sun god Helios, and later wife to the hero Jason, with whom she had two children, Mermeros and Pheres. In Euripides's play Medea, Jason leaves Medea when Creon, king of Corinth, offers him his daughter, Glauce. The play tells of how Medea gets her revenge on her husband for this betrayal.
