    Episode #138, Audio Performance, MEDEA, by Euripides.

    Episode #138, Audio Performance, MEDEA, by Euripides.

    MEDEA, by Euripides, adapted and performed by Julie Proudfoot, soundscape by Willow James. This adaptation is based on the 1912  translation into English rhyming verse by Gilbert Murray, M.A., L.L.D., who was a professor of Greek at the University of Glasgow & Fellow of New College, Oxford.

    Sound Designer Willow James and writer and actor Julie Proudfoot reimagine the tragedy of Medea as a solo character study of Medea’s inner struggles and lust for freedom and power.  Medea, a barbarian princess, is betrayed by her husband Jason when he abandons her to marry a Greek princess, gaining wealth and political power. Though he returns and promises to keep her as a mistress, Medea murders her and Jason’s sons and her husband’s new wife before escaping to Athens.  Join us for a bold feminist interpretation of this great Greek classic.
