Medea (Ancient Greek: Μήδεια, Mēdeia) is an ancient Greek tragedy written by Euripides, based upon the myth of Jason and Medea and first produced in 431 BC. The plot centers on the barbarian protagonist as she finds her position in the Greek world threatened, and the revenge she takes against her husband Jason who has betrayed her for another woman.


Medea by Euripides: The play opens in a state of conflict. Jason has abandoned Medea in hope to advance his station by marrying Glauce, the daughter of the King of Corinth. Fearing a plot of revenge, the King tries to banish Medea. However, Medea’s pleads for mercy grants her one day before she must leave, during which she plans to complete her quest for revenge.
