Medea is one of world literature's greatest dramas and this stunning performance by the Actors of Dionysus brings alive Euripides' timeless tragedy. Deserted by Jason, whose life she saved at a great cost to herself and others, and forced into exile by the father of her rival in love, Medea plots a barbaric revenge. The consequences wrought by her destructive actions, and by those who underestimate her bewitching power, are barrowing. Using David Stuttard's new translation the Actors of Dionysus aim to present the essence of the dramas in a way that is accessible without sacrificing the poetry and the grandeur of the original Greek, revealing them as timeless parables for a modern age.
