This audiobook brings to life Euripides’ Medea, read by actors from the company.
Deserted by her husband Jason, whose life she saved at great cost to herself and others, and forced in to exile by the father of her rival in love, Medea plots a barbaric revenge. The consequences wrought by her destructive actions, and by those who underestimate her bewitching power, are harrowing.
A timeless tragedy of a woman scorned and desperate to wreak a terrible vengeance.
Translated and directed by David Stuttard and featuring music composed by Olive Hamilton, this audiobook is produced by Penguin.
