FIRST LOOK: Medea at the National Theatre


Medea is a wife and a mother. For the sake of her husband, Jason, she’s left her home and borne two sons in exile. But when he abandons his family for a new life, Medea faces banishment and separation from her children. Cornered, she begs for one day’s grace. It’s time enough. She exacts an appalling revenge and destroys everything she holds dear.
I choose to take back my life. My life.
Helen McCrory returns to the National to take the title role in Euripides’ powerful tragedy, in a new version by Ben Power with music written by Will Gregory and Alison Goldfrapp.
Terrible things breed in broken hearts.
Medea will be broadcast live to cinemas around the world on Thursday 4 September. To find your nearest venue visit ntlive.com
