My honors thesis The Art of Adaptation discusses the process of adapting old stories and theatrical pieces for modern audiences through the exploration of various adaptations (theatrical, operatic, dance and film) of Euripides' Medea. It also touches on my own short, modern, adaptation; FURY: A Rock Musical Inspired by Medea. All of this research was important in making the performance aspect of my capstone the best it could be.


**Please note: A final copy of FURY: A Rock Musical Inspired by Medea by Katharine Jordan as it was performed 4/26/2013 and 4/27/2013 is available to reference. It is still in development in hopes of future performance**
