‘Medea’ is a tragedy written by the ancient Greek playwright Euripides, based on the myth of Jason and Medea, and particularly Medea‘s revenge against Jason for betraying her with another woman. I was commissioned to design the poster for the production; so utilising a cropped photograph of William Wetmore’s carving, a little vandalism and apposite bespoke text – I arrived at the poster you see below.
