About Medea

See Sophie Okonedo play a woman who transforms from a lover to a destroyer of love.

Dominic Cooke’s inventive adaptation of the ancient Greek Medea play will leave you on the edge of your seat. Critics couldn’t look away; London Theatre praised the raw design and riveting performances, with “Sophie Okonedo’s spellbinding performance giving it a mythic quality.” She’s joined by longtime collaborator Ben Daniels.

When Medea married Jason, she used her magic powers and advice to help him retrieve the golden fleece. So when she discovers her husband's streak of infidelity, she sets out to seek revenge. Can this strong woman fight for justice?

Slow, Refreshing, Great acting, Entertaining, Absorbing

See it if you are happy to see a play for terrific acting rather than set, catchy story, etc. (3 people on stage flinging emotions at each other here)

Don’t see it if you could get upset over verbal descriptions of graphic violence or if you won't enjoy a play that slowly builds up to a dramatic conclusion

Spare staging, Outstanding performances, Powerful theater

See it if you're interested in a riveting, unforgettable, take on the Greek tragedy with strong lead performances and interesting directorial touches.

Don’t see it if you're expecting a large production: this is an intimate setting with minimal sets & costumes, also if Greek tragedy is not your idea of fun

Shocking, Classic, Great staging, Masterful performances, Absorbing

See it if you want to see sublime performances. Great narrative with excellent staging choices that create tension and atmosphere on stage. Gripping.

Don’t see it if you want action, as it is a Greek Tragedy, the performance is focused on the spoken word.

More information about Medea

Don’t get in Medea’s way. She can plot her own revenge, and leave devastating trails of death and destruction. However, the Medea play isn't all about heartache. There's tender moments of love, betrayal, and the struggle for power. In Robinson Jeffers's adaptation, Medea blends the ancient and the modern for a forward-thinking look into modern civilisation.

What to Watch For:

  • Sophie Okonedo plays Medea. The Tony-winning actress is best known for starring in A Raisin in the Sun. She also gave an Oscar-nominated performance in the 2004 film Hotel Rwanda.
  • Ben Daniels plays Jason. Okonedo and Daniels previously appeared in Haunted Child at the Royal Court.
  • The ancient Greek play dates back as early as 431 BC. Euripides is one of three ancient Greek tragedy playwrights whose texts survived in full.
