We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.
Medea is a wife and a mother. For the sake of her husband, Jason, she has left her home and borne two sons in exile. But when he abandons his family for a new life, Medea faces banishment and separation from her children. Cornered, she begs for one day's grace. It's time enough. She exacts an appalling revenge and destroys everything she holds dear. Anchored in the same themes of love, pain and hatred the action has been transported from the ancient streets of Corinth to a south Manchester council estate. Medea, now an ordinary woman struggling to bring up her children, has just discovered Jason, her lover, has left her for another woman. Tortured by her seething passion, isolated by her position and crushed by the betrayal Medea rages against her fate… before plotting the ultimate, unthinkable revenge.Performers Danielle Henry (Medea), Drew Carter-Cain (Jason), Margaret Henshaw (Nana), Niven Ganner (Manny), Amy Pearson (Glauke).
