Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned as Complete Works Theatre Company presents Euripides’ Medea – a powerful tale of passion and revenge at the Union House Theatre for a limited season from 28 July 2015.
To have a hero’s love, Medea would do anything, deceive her father, kill her brother, leave her homeland forever and bare him two sons. But when the ambitious Jason betrays her to marry the king’s daughter she is grief stricken and an exile in a foreign land.
Despair turns to rage as Medea plans to completely destroy Jason’s happiness and exact the perfect revenge. When hate becomes greater than love… the consequences are beyond imagination.
