Synopsis
MEDEA: OUT OF THE MOUTHS OF BABES is Theatre Works’ new production based on Euripides’ MEDEA as recalled and reimagined from the fantastical minds of her (allegedly?) slain children. History is told by the victors, and myths preserved by those in power, but perhaps it is the youngest that grip the hardest truths?

Medea, arguably one of the darkest tales Western theatrical canon, is given a fresh and surprisingly playful rebirth as told from the point of view of its undoubtedly most important characters: Medea’s children.

This daring amalgamation of theatrical forms plays out like a surreal living music video with film projection, live feed and song.

Developed by the Theatre Works’ award-winning creative team and a council of children, who through a guided workshop process will refract Euripides and his ancient characters to form the basis of the script, the design and theatrical language of the work.
