Storyboard Text

  • Haha! I can gain so much more by marrying Glauce than by staying with Medea.
  • *hatching violent plants for justice, involving death of Glauce, Creon and Jason*
  • "You filthy coward I - if I knew any worse name for such unmanliness I'd use it"
  • "You would not give up your ridiculous tirades against the royal family. So, you're banished"
  • 'Medea' opens in a state of conflict. Jason has left his wife, Medea, and their young sons in favor of Glauce, Princess of Corinth.
  • Oh no! All the potential for my political alliance! What misfortune befalls me?!
  • Haha! My plan is working! Now for the next phase...
  • Fearing a potential revenge plot from Medea, Creon, King of Corinth, banishes her from the city. Given one day before she and her children must leave the city, Medea decides to set her plan into action... Medea, emotionally crushed by Jason's abandonment comes to curse her existence and her children's.
  • Ah! There is the dragon-chariot from my grandfather that will bring me to the safety of my Athenian friend!
  • Jason accuses Medea of being unreasonable, and declares his remarrying is in the best interests of everyone. Medea accuses Jason of being cowardly, refusing to accept his help or provisions as she prepares for exile with her children
  • How could it have happened this way? All the social norms Medea disregarded...how could she manage it?
  • Befriending the visiting King of Athens, Medea becomes resolute in her revenge plot: the pain of killing her children will be outweighed by satisfaction at Jason's distress. As part of her scheme, Medea pretends to befriend Glauce. She offers her a dress and coronet, both laced with poison. Glauce dies, and with her dies her father Creon.
  • But this was such a nice dress!
  • Against the protests of the chorus and her previous reservations, Medea commits infanticide, fleeing the scene in a chariot sent by her grandfather, the Sun God.
  • Jason is left cursing his lot: he has made no advancements in political alliance by abandoning Medea and the conflict of the opening scenes has been annihilated and everything he values has been lost through the course of the play
