This production of the play by Eurippides has been adapted for the stage by Robinson Jeffers and sees director Dominic Cooke collaborating once more with Sophie Okonedo and Ben Daniels, most recently on BBC’s The Hollow Crown – Wars of the Roses, in addition to working together across multiple stage productions since the 1990s.
Medea tells the story of a woman laid bare by grief and rage, and her terrible quest for revenge against the men who have abandoned her.
The creative team behind the production is set to include designs by Vicki Mortimer, lighting by Neil Austin and sound by Gareth Fry.
