My Mother Medea
A Unicorn Production
WHY SHOULD WE HAVE TO ADAPT WHEN WE’RE NOT WANTED IN THE FIRST PLACE?
- By Holger Schober
- Translated by David Tushingham
- Directed by Justin Audibert
But they’re fed up of being ‘the foreign kids’. They’ve had enough. They sit at the front of the class in their new school and spit out the story of who they really are to anyone who’ll listen.
This punchy, modern play by Austrian playwright Holger Schober offers a completely new angle on the age-old Greek myth of Jason and Medea, retelling their story through their children’s eyes. The audience sit at school desks as the new kids take centre stage and their story unravels.
Please note: Contains strong language
