Reviews of the performance
“We had just spent sixty minutes engulfed in the turbulent, claustrophobic and terrifying mind of a woman scorned… Seneca, Stead, Slaney and the five Medeas wrenched us out of our comfort zones… rendering this adaptation intense, poignant and highly recommended.”**** Holly Hewlett Oxford Theatre Review.”A brilliant take on the famous myth, handled with utmost passion by each of the actresses. Translator Henry Stead has skilfully produced a metamorphosis of the Latin text to a clear, understandable and riveting English translation which upholds all the emotion of the original. It is not often that you see an ancient play so enjoyable and easy to follow…”
