New CLan Arts presents Euripides’ ancient tragedy Medea as performed by the final year BA Acting students of New College Lanarkshire
In this version of Medea, acclaimed playwright Liz Lochhead takes a well-known text, blows it apart and reassembles it in a completely new light resulting in a brave, visionary and risky play that challenges our preconceptions of Euripides classic.
In Greek mythology, Medea was the daughter of King Aeëtes of Kolchis, niece of Circe, granddaughter of the sun god Helios. In the play, Jason has abandoned Medea, after Kreon, King of Corinth, offered his daughter Glauke. Medea seeks to exact a terrible revenge on Jason for his betrayal.
Medea figures in the myth of Jason and the Argonauts, a myth known best from a late literary version worked up by Apollonius of Rhodes in the third century BC and called the Argonautica. Medea is known in most stories as an enchantress, and is often depicted as a priestess of the goddess Hecate or a witch. The myth of Jason and Medea is very old, originally written around the time Hesiod wrote the Theogony around 700 BC.
Suitable for 14+. Contains adult themes
