Christen O’Leary (Bombshells, Gloria) and Helen Christinson (A Doll’s House) face off in this heart-stopping, newly-minted adaptation of Euripides’ tale of betrayal and revenge.
When Medea fell for Jason, she fell hard. Hard enough to sacrifice everything to be with him. She deceived her father, committed murder, left the comforts of her homeland and bore him two sons.
So when a power-hungry Jason takes up with a younger woman, Medea’s humiliation quickly turns to revenge and a horrible plan is hatched. Nothing is off limits. No one is safe. Not even the children.
Acclaimed Australian playwright Suzie Miller’s elegant adaptation will be played in the round, bringing this classic tale of revenge to life.
30 May – 20 June
