Terrible things breed in broken hearts…

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.

Helen McCrory (Harry Potter, The Last of the Haussmans, The Queen) returns to the National Theatre to take the title role in Euripides’ powerful tragedy. This new version by Ben Power, directed by Carrie Cracknell, features music written by Will Gregory and Alison Goldfrapp.

Due to popular demand, limited encore screenings of Medea will be shown at selected cinemas including Palace Cinemas and Cinema Nova. For session times and tickets, head to cinemanova.com or palacecinemas.com
