Medea Trial

posted by .

My teacher assigned my class to play out a trial of Medea vs. Jason. I was assigned to the Medea side and I am a lawyer who will try and prove it was Jason's fault that caused all the trouble (killing of Medea's two sons and, princess, and king.) My group told me to question Aegeous but the problem is I can't think what questions to ask King Aegeous to make Medea look good and Jason look bad. I tried to think of something first before coming here, but my mind is just blank. It doesn't seeem like I can ask many, but if you guys have any posible questions you can think of, IT WOULD BE AWESOME. Anyone knowledgable on greek mythology? Thanks guys a lot

Since this is not my area of expertise, I searched Google under the key words "Medea Jason" to get these possible sources:

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.

Look particularly at the character descriptions of the nurse who is a confident of Medea, Aegeous who agrees to let Medea have safety in his kingdom. Why would he do that? What does he know about Jason? Who knows about what Jason has done so that Medea has to protect him, even to the extent of killing her own brothers? These might be good witnesses.
