Medea: Out of the Mouths of Babes
Directed by Steven Mitchell Wright

Developed with children, performed by adults, a seriously playful tragedy.

Recalled and reimagined from the fantastical minds of her slain children, Medea: Out of the Mouths of Babes is Theatre Works’ latest premiere production, drawn from Euripides’ famous tragedy.

Arguably one of the darkest tales in the Western theatrical canon, this age-old story is given a fresh and surprisingly playful rebirth as told from the point of view of its undoubtedly most important characters: Medea’s children.

Playing out like a surreal living music video with film projection, live feed, and song, this new Australian work is developed by a council of children and Theatre Works’ award-winning creative team and promises to be a dynamic and compelling addition to the Victorian Arts Calendar.

History is told by the victors, and myths preserved by those in power, but perhaps it is the youngest that grip the hardest truths?
