Medea archiveMedea 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.

Medea will weave Euripides' ancient world together with the modern day story of one single mother's fight for the custody of her children. As she begins to lose control of her future, an old copy of Euripides' play, Medea, offers the inspiration she's been searching for... Performed by an all-female cast and using the cathartic power of song and the visceral power of movement by director George Mann (Pink Mist, Theatre Ad Infinitum), this retelling will attempt to reclaim Medea as a powerful female character who fought against injustice, at all costs.Producer Bristol Old Vic.
