Theatre Arts Department to perform “Medea” by Euripides

Feb 28, 2018

Flagler College’s Theatre Arts students will perform the classic Greek play, “Medea,” from March 21 to 24 at 7:30 p.m. and March 25 at 2 p.m. in the Lewis Auditorium, 14 Granada St.

Directed by Theatre Arts Department chair Andrea McCook, this production tells the tragic tale of Medea, who aided Jason in securing the “Golden Fleece” years earlier. Now settled with their two sons in a foreign land, Jason has decided to marry a young princess for political gain. An enraged Medea seeks revenge after having dedicated her life to his quest. Students Rylee Kuberra and John Kearney are the leads.

“'Medea' features an intimate, non-traditional, contemporary staging, and explores the lengths humans will go when cornered or trapped by circumstance,” McCook said.

Tickets are $15 general admission, available online at tickets.flagler.edu. Tickets may also be purchased directly at the box office beginning March 19, Monday through Friday, 12-5 p.m., and one hour prior to curtain. Students, including non-Flagler students, with their ID may receive a discounted $5 ticket. Flagler faculty, staff and students may obtain one free ticket directly at the box office.
