Medea

…chucked out like an auld coat that nae langer fits him…

A tale of horror, of the breaking of the ultimate taboo – of the snuffing out of the future – Medea is the classic drama of the eternal battle of the sexes.
Of hold-your-breath heartbreak and revenge.

Refugees in Corinth, Medea and Jason, clinging together, have struggled to bring up their beloved offspring in this alien and unsympathetic society.
Now Jason has a plan to better integrate himself.
Unfortunately, this involves abandoning his wife, the mother of his children…
Spurned, destitute, desperate, Medea exacts her terrible retribution.

Michael Boyd directs a brilliant, visceral ensemble in a production of Liz Lochhead’s award-winning adaptation with the wonderful Adura Onashile in the role of Medea.

Medea will be presented as part of the 2020 Edinburgh International Festival.
