The Major Plot Points of the Greek tragedy, Medea.

Storyboard Text

  • Medea, my mistress, has been wronged by her husband, Jason. He broke his vows to her, and has decided to marry the princess. Medea muses of death: hers and of the ones who have wronged her.
  • Fine, but only one day. What harm can you cause in only one day?
  • The truth is, Medea, I fear you. I fear what you might do to me, to my daughter. I'm banishing you and your sons. I don't care where you go, or what you do, but don't come back.
  • I beg of you, King Creon, let me stay one day longer to plan out how I will make a living for me and my children. Just one day more.
  • I know what I have to do. I'll kill Jason's bride-to-be. That will be a blow to him, and to the king. I'll send her a gown and diadem laced with poison. Anyone who touches it will die? How can I get it to her?
  • Well, the answer is simple. My sons will bring it to him. Yes, I'll be killing them too, but I have nothing to live for anyway.
  • I can try, Medea, but I make no promises. I will allow you to send such a gift. I'm glad you see things my way.
  • I'm sorry for being so foolish, Jason. I would like to send your bride a gift to apologize. Let our sons take it, and maybe she can convince Creon not to banish them along with me. What wrong have they done?
  • Run and get help! My daughter's been poisoned!
  • This can only be Medea's work. Find her before she does something else drastic! Make sure my sons are safe!
  • Yes sir!
  • No, you, Jason, are the monster! You broke your vows and now you pay the price!
  • Medea, what have you done? The king is dead, my bride is dead, and now you have killed your own sons out of spite?! You are a monster!
