Medea is a wife and a mother. For the sake of her husband, Jason, she has left her home and borne two sons in exile. But when he abandons his family for a new life, Medea faces banishment and separation from her children. Cornered, she begs for one day's grace. It's time enough. She exacts an appalling revenge and destroys everything she holds dear.Performers Tanya Moodie (Medea), Michel Brown (Nurse), Alan Cooke (Creon/Aegeus), Ekua Ekumah (Woman of Corinth), Julie Hewlett (Woman of Corinth), Clarence Smith (Jason), Jiordan Thompson (Medea's son), Lorenzo Thompson (Medea's son), Ony Uhiara (Woman of Corinth).
