Summary

Meredith è una rivisitazione della Medea di Euripide, ma con un adattamento, poiché il dramma si svolge nell'Inghilterra del XIX secolo. Il Signor Jason, aristocratico impoverito, rifiuta Meredith in favore di Gloria, figlia del ricco uomo d'affari Crane. All'inizio Meredith acconsente al piano di Jason, perché disposta a sacrificare tutto affinché i suoi figli non debbano affrontare la povertà. In seguito, Meredith non accetta più passivamente tale ipertinenza. -- Author.

'Meredith' is a retelling of Euripides' 'Medea', but with a twist as the drama takes place in nineteenth-century England. Impoverished aristocrat Lord Jason spurns Meredith in favour of Gloria, the daughter of the wealthy businessman, Crane. In the beginning, Meredith acquiesces with Jason's scheme because she will sacrifice everything, so her sons do not face poverty. Later, Meredith no longer tolerates such insolence passively. Resolute and shrewd, she focuses her formidable energies to realising the grandest, and most shocking, retribution possible on those who have wronged her. -- Author.
