“…when you talk of me, when you tell my story…tell the truth”

For the sake of her husband, Jason, Medea has left her home and borne two children in exile. But when he casts aside his family for a new life, and a new wife, Medea faces banishment and separation from her children. Feeling trapped, she begs for one day’s grace. One day is all she needs…

Euripides’ powerful tragedy explores themes of feminism, manipulation, terror and revenge in one of the most arresting and moving pieces in the dramatic canon.

Mixing both ancient and modern sensibilities, Ben Power’s Medea is a tour-de-force of passion, desperation and rage.
