A specially commissioned version of the celebrated revenge drama by Stella Duffy, after Euripides

But what happened next?

As the sun sets there's a chance for older audiences to enjoy the intrigue, scandal and heart-stopping suspense of a celebrity marriage in crisis as the adult Jason and Medea's love is tested to its limits.

When King Jason is lured away by a new princess, Medea plots the famous and terrible revenge that has shocked audiences for thousands of years. Is she right to act as she does?

Join the debate as we re-imagine the ancient drama in a lively, modern production embracing the magnificence of More London's riverside architecture. The Steam Industry team return to the plays of ancient Greece by popular demand after past award-winning productions of Oedipus, Agamemnon, Cyclops, Helen of Troy and Children of Hercules by the same author attracted huge crowds and international critical acclaim.
