A group of citizens waits outside Medea's house; today is the day, Medea will be banished by King Creon. For days, Medea's wails have echoed through the streets of Corinth. Medea loathes Jason, who abandoned her for the princess of this city, the man for whom she betrayed her entire family in Colchis. The area around Medea's house is cordoned off, a film crew appears, and gradually, stories about Medea and the Colchian women who surround her, take over.

Omstanders, after Medea, is a contemporary adaptation based on improvisations by the players, Euripides' Medea and Medea. Voices by Christa Wolf. The fear of the other and the lack of an equal dialogue ultimately result in a scapegoat effect, to which Medea falls victim. The strong woman who stands up to the injustice done to her.
