Medea, adapted from Euripides

Medea has abandoned her family and homeland of Colchis for the love of the great hero Jason, and her loyalty, cunning and talents in witchcraft have repeatedly rescued him. Now after bearing him two fine sons and settling in Corinth; Jason announces that Medea is to be cast aside, freeing him to marry royalty. Now finding herself not only abandoned, but banished from Corinth and driven beyond madness, Medea commits an unspeakable act of vengeance against her former husband.

This English adaptation of Euripides' classic play is in rhymed verse to create a close approximation of the rhythms and poetry of the original Greek text.
