Description

Immortalised as a monster of Ancient Greece, Medea, who helped Jason steal the Golden Fleece from her father, and murdered her own children, finally gives her defence. The Morton Players perform Splendid's condensed adaptation of Euripides' play which puts the audience at the heart of an exhilarating performance, while poking fun at its extreme tragedy. This mythical romance is as suspenseful as it is devastating. What drives a woman to infanticide? Who is the person behind the myth? Whose version of history should we believe? A kindly chorus of grandmothers present this timeless tale of passion, betrayal and revenge.

We very much enjoyed this production. It was very well acted and produced. We would thoroughly recommend seeing this production while it is still on.
