This is world-class theatre. A first-rate adaptation, by a first-class director, powered by first-class performances. Exquisitely, brutally bold.

New York Premiere

Real-life power couple Rose Byrne and Bobby Cannavale collaborate once more as Simon Stone's stunning contemporary re-imagining of the Greek tragedy comes to the Brooklyn Academy of Music in January 2020. Premiering in 2014 at the Internation Theatre Amsterdam and recently enjoying a successful run at London's Barbican theatre, Stone's adaptation uses the true crime story of Debora Green, who poisoned her philandering husband and killed two of her children in 1995 to translate Euripedes classic play for modern audiences.

What is the story?

Bridesmaids and Damages star Byrne will play Anna, a doctor concerned with giving her family a fresh start following her husband's affair. Recently released from a psychiatric hospital, she becomes more and more desperate as it appears her husband is not as committed to change as she is, leading to catastrophic results for the whole family unit as her mind unravels further.

First written in 431 BCE, Medea is considered one of the finest Greek tragedies, with themes that translate across the centuries. It also holds the record for most Tony award wins for the central character with Judith Anderson winning in 1948, Zoe Caldwell in 1982, and Diana Rigg in 1994.
