The article presents information about the play "Medea in Jerusalem. The play was presented by 71A Productions, casting by SFL Casting, at Rattlestick Playwrights Theater, 224 Waverly Place, New York City, August 5-September 4, 2004. There's no question that "Medea in Jerusalem" carries a strong political message. "Medea in Jerusalem" focuses on the oppression of Palestinians in Israel, on their treatment as second-class citizens— an uncomfortable fact that even the most loyal of Israeli supporters must acknowledge. Medea, in Kirby's account, is a Palestinian who marries Jason, an upwardly mobile Israeli.
