Performed at the Theatre between 10 Feb, 2023 and 22 Apr, 2023

Dominic Cooke directs Sophie Okonedo and Ben Daniels in a new production of Medea.

What could turn a woman from a lover into a destroyer of love?

Medea tells the story of a woman laid bare by grief and rage, and her terrible quest for revenge against the men who have abandoned her.

Sophie Okonedo brings her visceral, mercurial brilliance to literature’s most titanic female protagonist, whose complexity and contradictions have kept audiences on the edge of their seats, unable to look away, for almost 2,500 years.
