It’s 2019, members of a theater company rehearse Medea, the ancient tragedy of marital discord, palace intrigue, gender politics, and murder. Set during one of the company’s final run-throughs, PURE MEDEA follows contemporary actors as they create their own interpretation of Euripides’ play, intertwining the machinations of Medea’s revenge upon her husband with the smaller tragedies of their personal and professional lives.
