Medea Questions

Bring on the tough stuff - there’s not just one right answer.

  1. Is there ever a just reason for murder?
  2. In what ways does a play like Medea help the cause of women? How might it hurt it?
  3. Compare the plight of women Euripides day to today's society. Similarities? Differences?
  4. Directors often set Greek tragedies in another place and time other than Ancient Greece. If you were directing, where and when would you choose? Why?
  5. What would the play be like if it had been written from the perspective of a different protagonist? Jason? Creon? The Nurse?
