Chino Odimba’s modern adaptation of MEDEA opens at the Bristol Old Vic

News

Chino Odimba’s modern adaptation of the classic Medea will weave Euripides’ ancient world together with the modern day story of a single mother who faces losing her children and the roof over their heads after 18 years of marriage. However, just as she begins to feel that she has lost control of her future, she finds an old copy of Medea and discovers a woman within its pages that offers her the inspiration she’s been searching for…

Performed by an all-female cast and using the cathartic power of song and the visceral power of movement by director George Mann (Pink Mist, Light), this retelling will attempt to reclaim Medea as a powerful female character who fought against injustice, at all costs.
