Written by Simon Stone after Euripides

“A MEDEA YOU WILL REMEMBER.”
DE TELEGRAAF (NETHERLANDS)

Euripides’ controversial icon is reborn in visionary director Simon Stone’s (Yerma) stunning contemporary rewrite. Rose Byrne (Damages, Bridesmaids, You Can’t Take It with You) and Bobby Cannavale (The Lifespan of a Fact, The Hairy Ape, The Motherf**ker with the Hat) face off as a husband and wife in the tumultuous throes of an unraveling marriage. Transposing the devastation of Greek tragedy to a modern American home, Stone’s stripped-bare staging throws the couple’s every raw emotion into stark relief, from jealousy to passion, humor to despair. Who will pay the price?

This critical sensation riveted audiences across Europe and now comes to BAM for its US premiere, featuring an all-new cast, including Dylan Baker (The Good Wife, Happiness).
