Micro Nano Play Responses – Medea
Â· Summarize the play in a paragraph. (5 to 10 sentences.) Tell us the major characters, the plot and major themes.
Â· Give a paragraph of context–what was happening when the play was written. Why is it considered a classic? Was it controversial when it was first performed? What was the initial reaction?
Â· Then search for a groundbreaking or new production. Find a visual–pictures of the production, a video of rehearsal, a costume sketch, a set design, etc.
Â· Finally, do you think the production you researched represented the play well? Why or why not?
