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.
