The second production in DTC’s Classical Theater initiative, Medea is a 2500-year-old classic that still resonates today with its modern–day complexities of power, marriage, families and politics. Produced in Down Center Stage, the intimate basement theater space carved out of the Kalita Humphreys Theater, Medea will plunge the audience into the midst of an intense domestic dispute that quickly accelerates to its horrifying climax of violence, revenge and mutual destruction. With emotionally honest acting and a starkly beautiful, poetic text, Medea will be an unforgettable theatrical experience.
Medea will be performed in the basement of the Kalita Humphreys Theater in a unique, rawly designed, non-traditional theater space. Women and men will be seated in different sections of the audience, and audience members may be separated from one or more of their companions. The production runs 90 minutes with no intermission. There will be no late seating, and if you leave the theater space for any reason during the show you will not be readmitted. Food and drink are not permitted in the performance.
