Medea (NHB Classic Plays)


Euripides' classic about 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.

Winner of the Saltire Society's award for SCOTTISH BOOK OF THE YEAR 2001

'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

'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

'Some of the most exciting recent work on Greek drama in the English language' - Sunday Times
