The Irving Theater in association with Butler Theatre presents Euripides' Medea
Aug. 15 at 3, 6 and 9 p.m. at the Irving Theatre, 5505 E. Washington St.
Director Michael Burke says, "My concept is a hybrid of traditional and modern elements, and multimedia. The piece follows Euripides' plot (with a couple cuts for time allowances), and is played 'straight' as it were ... However, the piece is not simply Euripides' play ... What [the play] does not give us is an inside look at Medea's mind ... What we really want to know is what kind of woman this is who logically decides that killing her own children is the best idea. What's in her head?" One hour before each show, there will be a reception with food and drink. Tickets are $5, and will be sold at the door.
