Went to see the show yesterday and thought it was fantastic. Not like any other show I’ve seen and it’s brilliantly performed. Very thought provoking and would highly recommend it. Go see it!

Her storytelling ability was sublime and paired with the incredible music had me hooked. A riviting piece of theatre.

This was the best show I saw at the Fring. And that's not just my opinion, but also that of all the other people I went with. And there were some pretty fucking great shows. But the music, the acting, the original presentation, the PATHOS… it was all breathtaking. I mean, the story itself is fascinating, for those who know it, but this rendition, with Medea being the only character we actually see on stage, makes it so much more. We are completely transported into her mind and her emotions, because they're all we see, and its so powerful.
Thank you so much for that great show, I hope my review did it justice.

Absolutely fucking amazing, i'm so glad i went!! It was honestly so gut wrenching and mind blowing, and i could not believe it. the lead performer is amazing and manages to make you both feel for Medea and be utterly terrified by it. The music is excellent too, could be an album and as it goes on it really adds to the crazy atmosphere and tragedy of the story. The 80s setting works really well, too. I mean honestly i created my account just to post this review!
