Medea Tickets

Sophie Okonedo stars as the towering, vengeful Medea opposite Ben Daniels as Jason, in a new adaptation of the gut-wrenching Greek tragedy.

An unflinching tale of revenge

Stage and screen star Sophie Okonedo stars as one of Greek mythology’s most towering female figures in the compelling, rage-fuelled Medea at Soho Place Theatre.

Visceral and terrifying, Medea is the story of a woman’s desire for revenge after betrayal. Struck by heartbreak and humiliation, Medea plots against her ex-husband Jason and his new lover and will stop at nothing to see them suffer.

Euripides’ powerful tragedy has left audiences in awe for nearly 2,500 years, with a brilliantly complex female figure dominating the stage. This new adaptation by Robinson Jeffers stars Sophie Okonedo (Film: Hotel Rwanda; Stage: Antony and Cleopatra) as Medea and Ben Daniels as Jason/Creon/Aegeus.

Medea in London is directed by five-time Olivier Award winner Dominic Cooke (National Theatre: Follies; Good) and designed by Vicki Mortimer.

This rich psychological tragedy is a mesmerising, foreboding story that has fascinated and appalled audiences for generations. Medea tickets promise a theatrical experience that will keep you on the edge of your seat until its final, shocking moments.
