In this retelling of Euripides’ Medea tragedy of an abandoned lover, the heroine is a shy seamstress in seclusion in the Queens neighborhood of Corona.

Laurialan Reitzammer, Associate Professor and Associate Chair of Graduate Studies in Classics University of Colorado at Boulder,  studies Greek literature, Greek mythology and religion, and gender and sexuality. Her first book, The Athenian Adonia in Context: The Adonis Festival as Cultural Practice examines literary and visual representations of an ancient Greek women’s festival to argue that the performance of the ritual offered a critique of mainstream cultural practices.
