10-year-old Jasper and 12-year-old Leon are like most brothers you know. They fight. They laugh. They play games. Their bedroom is their fortress: home to Cornelius (their goldfish), watched over by Hercules (their teddy bear) and adorned with a ceiling of glow-in-the-dark stars.
But today something feels different. Their door is locked shut. Their parents’ shouting is getting louder. And, unbeknownst to them, at some point in the next hour, their iconic fate will ensure they enter mythology as two of the most tragic siblings of all time.
Told entirely from the perspective of Medea’s young sons, this internationally celebrated version of the Ancient Greek tragedy by Kate Mulvany (Jasper Jones) and Anne-Louise Sarks is directed by the incomparable Daniel Evans (Drizzle Boy, The Almighty Sometimes).
Tender, surprising and bittersweet: this is a reimagining of history’s most misunderstood mother in an unforgettable pressure-cooker performance that is not to be missed.
