Medea: Headlong Theatre
'If there's a God, which at the moment I DOUBT, I want you to curse him. If there's any justice, I want them – both of them – in a car crash.'
Her husband's gone and her future isn't bright. Imprisoned in her marital home, Medea can't work, can't sleep and, increasingly, can't cope.
While her child plays, she plots her revenge...
This startlingly modern version of Euripides' classic tragedy explores the private fury bubbling under public behaviour and how in today's world a mother, fuelled by anger at her husband's infidelity, might be driven to commit the worst possible crime.
A new version of Euripides by Mike Bartlett.
