Description - Medea (Paulin) by Euripides
Medea, maddened by her husband Jason's infidelity, murders their two sons. One of the most famous of the Greek tragedies, is reworked by poet Tom Paulin into lithe and sinewy modern English that conveys the shocking story - and our conflicted loyalties as spectators to the tragedy - more strongly than ever.
