“Cusk's ferociously persuasive update... savage, sometimes laugh-out-loud bitter... This thrilling version is unmissable. ”

Paul Taylor (The Independent)

“Utterly brazen, slightly irritating and incredibly powerful... Fleetwood is astonishingly good. ”

Andrzej Lukowski (Time Out)

“Fleetwood, coiled with pent-up fury, at one point collapsing in a broken heap, has never been better. ”

Dominic Cavendish (The Telegraph)

“Sharp modern take... Fleetwood brings a chilling intensity to the title role... Genuinely fresh. ”

Henry Hitchings (Evening Standard)

“Cusk lasers her way to the centre of Euripides’s drama to come up with a coruscating 21st-century version. ”

Susannah Clapp (The Observer)

“[Cusk has] written a terrific new play that tells you much more about herself, and the way we live now, than about Euripides. ”

Michael Coveney (What's on Stage, The Stage, Independent)

“A captivatingly performed if problematic conclusion to the Almeida’s ambitious Greeks season. ”

Natasha Tripney (The Stage, Time Out)

“Alternately exhilarating and baffling... Fleetwood gives a ferocious, soul-baring performance... Cusk bolts at the final fence. ”

Michael Billington (The Guardian)

“Not so much a version as a rip-out... Medea, played with all-consuming passion by Kate Fleetwood, is fury incarnate. ”

Ann Treneman (Times)
