Rupert Goold directs Kate Fleetwood as one of drama’s most infamous characters at the Almeida Theatre.

Adapted by controversial feminist writer Rachel Cusk, Medea follows the title character as her marriage – and everything else – begins to break up.

Testing the limits of revenge and liberty, Euripides’ seminal play cuts to the heart of gender politics and asks what it means to be a woman and a wife.

Olivier Award nominated actress Fleetwood, whose recent stage credits include High Society at the Old Vic and the National Theatre’s 2014 production of King Lear, makes her Almeida Theatre debut in the production.
