Our award winning adaptation of Euripides' classic tale of love, hate and bloody revenge.
"A perceptive and alarmingly modern insight into the devastating power of perverted love and twisted logic. A fabulous story, and powerful theatre. "
This production aroused tremendous excitement on a tour of arts centres and colleges in England.
It took Canada by storm, chosen as best production at each of the three festivals it played.
After performances at the 1999 RSC Visitors Season, Medea played the Orlando International Fringe Theatre Festival, winning awards for Best Production and Best Female Performer.
Medea has proved to be of particular interest to colleges and Open University groups. An accompanying workshop explores the themes and the structure of Euripides' original, relating these to present day concerns and styles of theatre.
