Surviving almost 2500 years,
Medea remains one of the most controversial plays of all time and still an actor favorite. Jealousy, sex, revenge, magic and murder in a Greek masterpiece that disturbs, confounds and perplexes audiences and generates controversy wherever it is performed - that's the Medea by Euripides. This dramatically demanding play, in a recent translation preserving the poetry and power of the original, is still a challenge and test for actors today.
