THE TRAGEDY OF MEDUSA
SON OF SEMELE COMPANY CREATION FESTIVAL
The Tragedy of Medusa is a nuanced, contemporary retelling of the classical myth of Medusa and Perseus. At the heart of the show is the romantic relationship between the goddess Athena and her human priestess, Medusa, whose relationship is complicated when the other gods find out and intervene.
