By Euripides – a new version by Tom Paulin

Tuesday 2 to Saturday 6 February


This Medea is a contemporary take of classic Greek tragedy. Its monumental storyline features one of theatre’s most spectacularly vengeful women.

The North

Tom Paulin’s gritty modern language version brings real punch and immediacy to the drama. Powered by the muscularity of Northern Broadsides’ northern voice and vigour of its actors, Medea will be a theatrical event where poetry and live music ignite on stage, giving real clout to this timeless drama.  Northern Broadsides is one of the UK’s most celebrated exponents of classic drama, consistently creating world-class theatre with a voice style firmly rooted in the north of England. Renowned for its down to earth and high-energy approach, Broadsides’ have an inimitable style, which is fresh, authentic and unique.
