Titan's original translation and adaptation by Nefeli Vasiliadou and Titan Artistic Director Lenny Banovez, is an innovative retelling of Euripides' tale of a wife's calculated and unspeakable revenge against her unfaithful husband.

The production is placed in the company's new "winter slot", a show that to was added to Titan's standard 3 show season to meet the company's high demand for programming.

The predominantly female production stars Titan Resident Company Member Leah Gabriel in the Title Role, and features Broadway Veteran Ellen Fiske as The Nurse. The cast is rounded out by Titan Resident Company members Tristan Colton as Jason, Alyssa Van Gorder as Aegeus, Titan Journeymen Members Lindsay Nance as Glauce, Rachel Schmeling as The Nanny, and Guest Artists Molly Thomas as Creon, Slias Wade and Ella Taylor. Jake Lesh, Sara Ornelas, and Analiese Puzon will understudy.

Banovez will Direct, with Lighting Design by Alan Piotrowicz, Costume Design by Leah Smith, Projection Design by Chris Kateff, Sound Design by Jessica Mcllquham, and Fight Direction by Molly Thomas. Kris Murphy is the Production Stage Manager.
