About Facing Medea
Three young women pass a church where an important marriage is taking place, they hear an explosion and terrifying screams …… an horrific tragedy unfolds in front of them. Hours later they are still there trying to piece together what
has happened. Gradually they realise it is Medea’s tragedy that they have witnessed. It is as if it has only just happened for the first time - the immediacy of its impact is unexpectedly personal and powerful. Facing Medea is not an adaptation of a Greek tragedy but a search for the traces of this potent tale that still remain. It offers a fresh and contemporary perspective on this ancient yet deeply relevant myth.
