Medea (Theatre Babel Version)

By Euripides
Adapted by Liz Lochhead
Imprint: Nick Hern Books
Paperback : 9781854596024, 64 pages, August 2000


Euripides' classic story of the woman who murders her own children in revenge for her husband's infidelity, here given a distinctive Scots flavour by the poet and playwright Liz Lochhead.


"Liz Lochhead's stunning new version of Medea is the kind of interpretation – brave, visionary, risky – that blows a well-known text apart and reassembles it in a completely new light... ancient but new, cosmic yet agonisingly familiar."

- Scotsman

"This outstanding work should firmly establish the Glasgow playwright as Scotland's greatest living dramatist... the finest piece I have seen on the Scottish stage this year."

- Scotland on Sunday

"Some of the most exciting recent work on Greek drama in the English language."
