MEDEA
Adaption by Paul Roche
Directed by Libby Tofig

Thursday-Saturday, February 21-23, at 7:30 pm
MACS Acting Studio, Room 177
Math & Computer Science Building
139 Tressel Street, Berea

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. Euripides’ iconic drama follows the titular character of Medea on her quest for vengeance in the aftermath of her husband’s betrayal. The director’s unique four-character adaptation of this classic is a fiercely compelling narrative about the lengths we are driven to in the face of a broken heart.

Based on William Hogarth's "A Rake's Progress" paintings and engravings, this bawdy morality play tells the story of Tom Rakewell, who deserts his small-town sweetheart for the carnal delights of London at the invitation of Nick Shadow (the devil). Nick lures Tom with the news of a large inheritance then leads him down a dark pathway of sex, drugs and debauchery, ultimately driving Tom to insanity. The characters re-appear in an epilogue to deliver the moral of the story: "For idle hearts and hands and minds the Devil finds work to do."

BURRELL OBSERVATORY SERIES:  STARS & CLUSTERS RIPPED FROM THE GALAXIES
Dr. Patrick Durrell, Distinguished Professor, Physics & Astronomy, Youngstown State University
Friday, April 12, 7:30 pm
Center for Innovation and Growth
340 Front Street, Berea

The Burrell Observatory presents Dr. Patrick Burrell, Distinguished Professor of Physics at Youngstown State University, who will present a lecture on how stars and clusters of stars are ripped from their home galaxies. Intergalactic stars are thought to have originated in galaxies like other stars, but later expelled as the result of either colliding galaxies or of a multiple star system travelling too close to a supermassive black hole.  

After the lecture, the Burrell Observatory will be open for viewing, weather permitting.

For questions, contact the Observatory Director at gkader@bw.edu, or the Department of Physics and Astronomy at 440-826-2312.
