“What I want to do is the worst thing that I can. But is this the worst thing?“
Left without a husband, a home or a life of her own, a vengeful spirit begins to take hold. By Jove’s Medea is a modern fable of motherhood that takes a blunt knife to the connections we make between a woman’s morality and her love for her children.
Stripped back to its uncomfortable core, Euripides’ story is re-built at the Gallery on the Corner. We enter the claustrophobic home of the kind of feminine evil that terrifies us – that we feel is somehow different to human evil – and find out why violent women so disrupt our notions of social order.
COMING SEPTEMBER 2017 @ the Gallery on the Corner
