    'And I am a Lady of Sorrows'

    When her husband Jason abandons his wife, Medea, and their children for a new marriage, Medea finds herself thrown into a cycle of destruction, vengeance and misery. Having abandoned her home land for love she finds herself abandoned, outcast and persecuted. From her spiral of self-destruction she resolves to avenge herself upon Jason in any way she can, and at any cost.

    Euripedes' Medea is a classic text and the translation by E.P. Coleridge retains the energy that has made it famous for millenia. In a play dealing with love, betrayal and gory revenge, the Alcock players present a modernist interpretation including an orginal musical score.
