Helen McCrory (The Last of the Hauss­mans) returns to the National The­atre to take the title role in Euripi­des’ pow­er­ful tragedy, in a new ver­sion by Ben Power, directed by Car­rie Crack­nell.

Medea is a wife and a mother. For the sake of her hus­band, Jason, she’s left her home and borne two sons in exile. But when he aban­dons his fam­ily for a new life, Medea faces ban­ish­ment and sep­a­ra­tion from her chil­dren. Cor­nered, she begs for one day’s grace.

It’s time enough. She exacts an appalling revenge and destroys every­thing she holds dear.
