Splendid Streaming Production Video
Splendid Productions’ Medea (streaming video)
“It was us against the world… then it was you against me…”
In Ancient Greece, the name of the monstrous murdering mother Medea was well- known. The story of Medea, the mysterious sorcerer-princess who helped Jason steal the famous Golden Fleece from her father, is a mythical romance with a terrible, terrible ending.
Splendid’s surprisingly funny creative adaptation of the Euripides classic puts the audience at the heart of the performance, as a kindly chorus of grandmothers presents a timeless tale of passion, betrayal and revenge. While history paints Medea as a pitiless monster, we wonder if the truth can be so simple?
