Medea Tough-o-Meter

By Euripides

Tough-o-Meter

(6) Tree Line

Sure it's a Greek tragedy, so you've got some pretty long speeches and heightened language to contend with. However, there's plenty of action to keep it interesting. Euripides, being the most modern of the ancient Greek tragedians, usually has no trouble connecting with today's audiences. The play's almost natural dialogue and its horror movie ending make it pretty darn engaging.
