Description A Generation BAM Performance for High School Students. 10th - 12th grades. Medea, Euripedes' classic Greek tragedy of a woman scorned, is brought into contemporary focus in this striikng new production directed by Deborah Warner and starring Fiona Shaw. When Medea's husband Jason abandons her for a more advantageous political marriage, she is distraught and punishes him in the most horrendous way she can imagine -- by killing their children. This production seamlessly introduces modern language and gesture, updating but never losing the essence of the classic work. This is a Medea that speaks to modern young audiences.
