The University of Idaho’s original adaptation of the Medea myth examines the title character’s backstory, peeling back her image as a destructive and vengeful sorceress who betrays, murders and rages. First told in ancient Greece when women didn’t have much of a voice, original versions of the Medea myth don’t explore the complex emotions that led her to commit infamous treacheries (including killing her children as revenge on her former lover), yet this new adaptation does. Starring theater professor Kelly Quinnett in the title role, Medea: Her Story also explores women’s issues as it weaves the myth’s numerous versions into a cohesive, modern story. With a cast and crew of more than 30 students, along with fire-breathing bulls, an 80-gallon pool, two choruses and a live band, this staging of the Medea myth matches the intensity of her story.

Oct. 13-23; Thu-Sat at 7:30 pm, Sun at 2 pm • $10-$15 • University of Idaho Hartung Theater • 625 Stadium Dr., Moscow • uidaho.edu/class/theatre
