Medea Electronica

by Pecho Mama

Medea Electronica is a powerful and deeply moving gig-theatre retelling of the ancient Greek tragedy, set in the technological turbulence of the 1980's.

  • Wheelchair Access
  • Tues 30 January - Sat 10 February 7.30pm (NOT Thurs 1, Sun 4 or Mon 5) PREVIEW Tues 30 January

Running time: 70 minutes (no interval)

Venue: Downstairs

With the discovery of her husband's deceit and betrayal, Medea is driven to embark on a journey of savage revenge and destruction. This intense drama takes place amidst the brilliant chaos of a live synth gig; an all original mash up of contemporary Electronica and 80’s inspired Progressive Rock.

Medea is the chilling tragedy, told originally by Euripides in 431BC and best known for its savage act of infanticide by a mother in revenge for her husband’s adultery. Theatre lovers and live music fans alike will fall in love with Pecho Mama, a genre-defying new company.
