Upstage, Wellesley College’s largest student theatre organization, is presenting Medea by Euripides in a translation by Michael Collier and Georgia Machemer as its final production of the 2015-2016 Season.

Alone, Medea faces banishment and separation from her children. Cornered, she exacts an appalling revenge and destroys everything she holds dear.
The play opens on April 27th @ 8 pm and runs every night until Sunday May 1st in the Hay Amphitheatre outside Alumnae Hall. Tickets are $5.
