Description

Medea Speaks is a rallying cry to take the conversation begun by #MeToo further. Franca Rame's acclaimed interpretation of Medea is co-directed by award-winning author and political campaigner Jennifer Nadel and Myles O'Gorman from Helikon Theatre Company (***** TheAudienceClub.com). Cathy Conneff (winner of Best Supporting Actress at the Madrid International Film Festival) takes the title role. Each performance is followed by a live discussion with special guest panellists, exploring power, abuse, coercion and control. This fresh and urgent production combines the world of politics with the realm of the stage offering an unmissable and powerful experience.
