The Johnson High School Theatre Department is proud to announce its first production of the 2013—2014 season: the Greek classic, Medea by Euripedes. Performances will be held October 17—19 at 7 p.m. and October 20 at 2 p.m. in the Johnson Auditorium. Tickets are $6 (presale) and $8 (at the door).
The story is one of the most familiar of Greek tragedies. The play tells the tale of Medea, whose beloved husband, Jason, is trading her in for a younger princess. Johnson Theatre’s updated take on the classic text sets the play in the middle of our vapid celebrity-obsessed media culture. This is a Medea for our time—the stretching of an ancient play into a commentary on the public airing of private breakdowns, breakups and humiliations. This Medea could have been inspired by a tabloid headline.
