Salem Theatre Company is proud to open their new space with this modern version of the epic MEDEA. In a scorching new text by Ben Power from the National Theatre in London comes the enduring story of Medea. After ending up in exile after sacrificing everything she knows and loves for Jason, he abandons her and their children. Cornered she exacts a revenge like none other and destroys everything she loves. Exploring the harsh reality of what a woman must do to attain what she could be, Medea is the story of a woman who will stop at nothing to take her life back.
