presents Deena Jiles Shaub of Actor's Equity in Medea.
Foreigner. Woman. Outsider.
When Medea abandons her father's house and leaves her homeland, she does so
urged on by her love for Jason and his oaths of loyalty to her. When those oaths
prove false, love turns to hatred and married bliss turns to bloody revenge.
This is the story of what happens when an extraordinary woman finds herself
forced to take action against a system which denies her agency based solely on
her gender and her nationality. With sentiments that resonate as surprisingly
modern and topical in a volatile political climate, Euripides invites us to
examine the consequences of a woman, an immigrant, breaking out of the role
which a patriarchal society has forced her to play.
