The UTEP Department of Theatre and Dance presents the play "Medea" by Euripides, directed by Jay Stratton.

Hate is a bottomless cup; and I will pour and pour… When Medea met Jason on the Isle of Colchis, she knew there was nothing she would not do to win the hero’s love. To be at his side, she fled her home and left her people behind. She took up residence in a foreign city and tolerated it when the locals called her ‘barbarian.’ But when Jason breaks faith and turns his attention to a beautiful young princess, Medea’s heart is shattered. She exacts a vengeance of unthinkable brutality – vengeance as shocking today as it was to audiences when the play premiered more than 2,000 years ago.
