Theatre Students Present Staged Reading of “Medea”
Students from the Theatre Department will present a full-length staged reading of Euripides’ “Medea,” at 4 p.m. April 23 in James G. Severns Theatre.
“Medea” is the iconic, bitter heroine from Greek mythology, who killed her children in order to spite her husband, Jason, the retriever of the Golden Fleece.
Scheduled to last approximately 65-70 minutes, the performance will be a staged reading with no scenery, props, lights or costumes. Students in the class have done paper designs of all of these elements, which will be posted for audience members to see as they arrive or depart the theatre.
The performance is in partial fulfillment of course requirements for THEA 481: Advanced Studies and Projects in Theatre: Staged Readings. There will be a single performance. Admission is free, and no tickets are required.
