Went to see this last night and I thought it was great - do try to get down if you can. Going to see Medea next weekend. No connection etc!

We've seen both Medea and Jason now.

Jason is very good, particularly in the current clement weather. We were less taken with Medea - good acting, but a weak reworking of the original text. A big pat on the back to both Steam Industry Theatre and The Scoop for putting on another excellent summer season.

Also no connection.

I went to Medea at the Scoop last week and though it was really good.

I have no expertise in Greek mythology and don't know the Euripides original. I found this accessible and compelling - actually it is quite gruesome!

The Scoop staff were friendly too - especially as we arrived a bit late.

No connection etc.
