The Georgia Southern Theatre is gearing up for this semester with their first show, Medea by Euripides, premiering Wednesday, Sept. 22, and running through Sunday, Sept. 26.

This classic play, directed by Lisa L. Abbott, is based on the Greek Myth of Jason and Medea, the foreign Princess who helped Jason recover the Golden Fleece. Medea and Jason flee to Greece and it is here that the play picks up the story. Abandoned by Jason, Medea plots the ultimate vengeance, to take the lives of their children.  This is a play with no easy answers. Is Medea powerless? Is she the victim or the villain?

This classic Greek Tragedy will premiere Wednesday, Sept. 22, at 7:30 p.m. The showtime will remain at 7:30 p.m. for the remainder of the performances except for a 2 p.m. matinee Sunday, Sept. 26. 

All performances will be held at the Center for Art & Theatre, located behind the Interdisciplinary building next to the Art building, on the Statesboro Campus. 

General admission will be $12 with student admission at $6. Tickets can be purchased by calling the Box Office, 912-478-5379, or reserving a ticket online at www.gsucat.ludus.com
