Euripides, translated by Jemima Jayne


Medea is a two-thousand year old drama, first staged by Euripides in ancient Athens and now newly translated by the director Jemima Jayne. A simple, emotional, tragic production, Medea is the story of a clever woman, a destitute foreigner in a strange land, a spurned wife and a soon-to-be-exiled mother. She has suffered the ultimate disgrace, and her righteous fury drives the plot of the story, up to its terrible climax. The story is brutal, timeless, and shocking. This ancient human drama, transcends time and language. For a two thousand year old drama written by Euripides, it is shockingly current and fresh, with themes of sexism, xenophobia, oppression, divorce, passion, motherhood, love and hate.
