Euripides' Medea, a
classical Greek tragedy
written in the 5th century,
' B.C., about the revenge of

production of Medea,
which will be presented
April 8-11 at 8:15 p.m.
and april 12 at 3:15 p.m.
in the University theatre.
The universality of the
plot of Medea transcends
time to relate to familiar
issues voiced through the
movement. Women will
empathize with Medea
even though her revenge
will far exceed what is
socially and spiritually ac
ceptable. Director Karen Dacons
has allowed her creative
instincts to venture
beyond the traditional
script, she will augment
the emotional ' and
mystical energies' in the
script through a total
theatre approach'. Artful
coordination of music,
dance, creative lighting,
