Written originally by Euripides in 431BC, the tale of Medea is best known for its shocking act of filicide. Genre-defying new company Pecho Mama place the chilling tragedy in the maelstrom of a live synth gig with an all original soundtrack of contemporary Electronica and 80s-inspired Progressive Rock. With the discovery of her husband's deceit and betrayal, Medea is driven to embark on a journey of savage revenge and destruction.
