In a modern telling of Euripides’ tragedy (re-write by Chino Odimba) Medea is devestated by the betrayal of her husband, who has left her for another woman. Now troubles are mounting for Medea, who is about to lose her home and her children.
While her ex prepares to marry his new love, Medea wants to get her revenge desperately. And it seems that she has found the inspiration she needs in the pages of an old book...
Performed by an all-female cast and directed by George Mann, this new play at Bristol Old Vic aims to reclaim the character of Medea as a powerful fighter against injustice, who battled on at all costs.
