Medea (Northern Broadsides version)

By Euripides Adapted by Tom Paulin

Paperback £9.99£7.99

Betrayed by a husband she sacrificed everything for, Medea unleashes a horrific vengeance on her enemies, by murdering her own children.

Featuring one of the most powerful female roles in the history of drama, Euripides' tragedy Medea is reworked by poet Tom Paulin into lithe and sinewy modern English that conveys the shocking story - and our conflicted loyalties as spectators to the tragedy - more strongly than ever.

This version of Medea was first staged by Northern Broadsides on a UK tour in 2010.

Press Quotes

'Tom Paulin's new version is robust, flecked with poetry but still down to earth'


'Paulin's script probes into the deeper and darker reasoning behind Medea's ostracism, the otherness that has both attracted and repelled her intimates'
