About Medea

BSU Theatre turns to a complex ancient tale of betrayal and revenge in a new devised adaptation of Medea. Though guilty of heinous crimes, this story explores societal permissiveness and forgiveness extended to men which would drive women to do the unimaginable. A blend of contemporary language, movement and aerial choreography, Medea explores the many layers of the mind and a broken heart.
