MedeaRupert Goold directs Kate Fleetwood in Rachel Cusk's new version of Medea, which forms part of the Almeida's Ancient Greeks season. Coming at a time when Europe frets about the Grexit, Euripides's seminal play cuts to the heart of gender politics and asks what it means to be a woman and a wife. One of the most disturbing of all Greek myths, Media sees a scorned wife take revenge on her faithless husband, delving into a world of witchcraft, betrayal and poison.

 

About Almeida Theatre

Along with the Donmar Warehouse, the Almeida is the most critically praised theatre in Britain. After Jonathan Kent took over in 1990, it had 14 West End transfers in 12 years, and early booking for tickets became essential - by the time the reviews came out, the run was usually sold out.
