Few theatre pieces challenge student actors to not only reach their own ultimate acting ability but also to reach into the hearts of those least empathetic and aim for understanding. Euripides' version of Medea is one such play. Told through modern translation and using modern women's stories, this cast of theatre students brings to life the ancient controversial story of a woman pushed to the edge of sanity. After Jason's feat with the dragon and his triumphant journey home on the Argo, he divorces the woman who helped him through the trials, leaves his children to exile, and marries anew in order to advance his societal standing. Audiences join his ex-wife, Medea, just days after learning of her new fate and follow her path of destruction.
