For love, Medea sacrificed everything – only to suffer the ultimate betrayal at the hands of her husband, Jason. As he prepares to marry his new bride, Medea plots the ultimate act of revenge to free herself from him and immortalise those she holds dear, finally taking control of her own destiny.

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.
