Directed by George Mann, MEDEA to open at the Bristol Old Vic in May

Performed by an all-female cast and using the cathartic power of song and the visceral power of movement by director George Mann, this retelling of Euripides’ tale will attempt to reclaim Medea as a powerful female character who fought against injustice, at all costs.

This retelling will weave Euripides’ ancient world together with the modern day story of a single mother who faces losing her children and home after 18 years of marriage. However, just as she begins to lose hope she finds an old copy of Medea and discovers a woman within its pages that offers her the inspiration she’s been searching for.

MEDEA will be at the Bristol Old Vic from the 5th-27th May.
