About The Performance
Columbia University School of the Arts presents Medea, a directing thesis production by current student Tiffani Swalley.
“I choose to take back my life. My life.”
For the sake of her husband, Jason, Medea left her home and gave him two sons in exile. But when Jason abandons his family for a new bride and a new life, Medea faces banishment and separation from her children. She begs King Kreon for one day’s grace. Is one day enough time to carry out her plans? Will the gods provide her a way out? Will she take fate into her own hands and how far will she go? How far would you go, to take back your life?
