“I cannot stand the chorus and those girls of tender ages who sympathise with heroines in plays upon our stages!”
For the first time, the National Theatre of Greece presents the modern version of Medea written by Mentis Bostantzoglou (better known as Bost) at the Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus, in a production directed by Giannis Kalavrianos. Written in 1993 in 15-syllable iambic verse, this landmark of Greek drama is an explosive comedy about the contemporary reality of Greece. Medea, Antigone, a fisherman, Jason, a nun, and a highly unusual chorus meet unexpectedly to dispel all our certainties, “to judge the judges, to trouble the critics, and to liberate the spectators”.
