Latest Medea Reactions

Here's just a sample of some of the comments we've seen about Medea:

"In this brave and brilliant new version of the play...if the whole show seems to be walking a high-wire between breathtaking genius and complete absurdity, the sense of danger only makes the spectacle more exciting, and Rachael Stirling's central performance as Medea more thrilling to watch".
The Scotsman ★★★★★

"Diana Rigg gave an award-winning performance as Medea. I saw that production...and I can say with some conviction that her daughter, Rachael Stirling, gives a performance every bit as thrilling in the same role in this new production." 
The Times  ★★★★

"#Medea at @citizenstheatre - Mike Bartlett's new version like Euripides brought up on diet of Mike Leigh and Roman Polanski - powerful stuff"

“Stirling’s remarkable portrayal of the anti-heroine is simultaneously, disconcertingly erratic and frighteningly implacable.”

"Medea @citizenstheatre: Plays out surprisingly funny but reckons as it must in blood. A well-written, near televisual Tragedy for Today."
