  • Medea

    Written by: Christopher Durang and Wendy Wasserstein
    Director: B​ill George​
    Stage Manager:​ Margaret Tilmes ‘20 

    A Greek tragedy becomes a hilarious parody when Medea and her chorus of three mournful women try to figure out if it’s appropriate to kill her children and to punish her husband. Jason, the Argonaut, shows up; so does a messenger with news of Lady Teazel; and a Deus ex Machina comes in to cheer everybody up. Don’t miss this hoedown of a show.

    Medea: Maddie Brown ‘19
    Jason: Oliver Satola ‘20
    Angel/Messenger: Elliot Oppenheim ‘21
    Chorus Woman 1: Mia Young ‘19
    Chorus Woman 2: Isabelle Orr ‘22
    Chorus Woman 3: Tess Thornton ‘20
