Medea, expelled, outcast and aggrieved stands at the gates of Creon's palace. She awaits news of Jason, grinding her life and fate on the millstone of her memory. 
She has lost everything except her painfully obsessive love. Caught between the past and the present, between reality, illusion, and madness, she struggles to recall what has befallen her.

Part of the second annual Women and War festival.

Ages 18+


She imagines all the impending horrors of exile, recoiling with dread at every possible decision, every possible outcome. In her mind’s eye, she looks into the face of each of her loved ones and struggles in desperation to hold herself back from atrocious and irreversible crimes.

This new piece, set  in an abandoned and desolate border area, draws on ancient Greek stories by Euripides & Seneca, and on modern author Heiner Mueller.
