BYU to stage Utah Classical Greek Theatre production of "Medea" Sept. 29

Brigham Young University will host the University of Utah’s Classical Greek Theatre in its presentation of Euripides’ “Medea,” the story of a Greek goddess, Monday, Sept. 29, at 5 p.m. in the de Jong Concert Hall, Harris Fine Arts Center.

A free lecture will precede the production at 4 p.m. Tickets for the performance are $10, or $7 with a BYU or student ID. Tickets can be purchased at the Fine Arts Ticket Office, by calling (801) 422-4233 or by visiting byuarts.com.

Driven by the complex character of its heroine, the plot follows Medea’s decision and plotting of revenge against her husband, Jason. Motivated by rage, honor, pride and maternal love, “Medea” proves a stunning example of the divided woman, and her rational and emotional monologues illustrate the challenges of being wife, mother and human.

Using a modern American translation as a script, this Classical Greek Theatre Festival production is directed by Sandra Shotwell and feature actors from the University of Utah’s Actor Training Program.

For more information, contact the BYU Department of Theatre and Media Arts at (801) 422-6645.
