Watch a modern adaptation of Greek tragedy Medea
Phoebe Eclair-Powell's Fury has been garnering brilliant reviews since its release. A modern adaptation of Medea, Fury is the gripping tale of a young and vulnerable single mum's attempts to raise her children against the blackmail of the monster upstairs.
Confronting both motherhood and class, this powerful play tackles society's judgemental views, using music and commentators in the form of a Greek chorus.
Shortlisted for the Verity Bargate Award and winner of the Soho Theatre Young Writer's Award, don't miss your chance to see a new spin on a Greek classic - extra dates have already been added to accommodate demand!
