By Euripides
Translation by Philip Vellacott
Adaptation by Linda Hardy

Disturbing yet powerful, this Greek tragedy of betrayal and revenge chronicles the passionate story of Medea, a woman whose love ultimately leads to her destruction. Based on the myth of Jason and Medea, it was first produced in 431 BCE and continues to impact audiences today.
