Full cast announced for Almeida's Medea
The Almeida Theatre in north London has now announced the full cast for their upcoming production of Medea, which runs as part of their Greek Season from 25 September to 14 November 2015, with an official opening on 01 October 2015.
Joining the previously announced Kate Fleetwood, who makes her Almeida debut in the title role, will be Michele Austin, Guillarmo Bedward, Sarah Belcher, Amanda Boxer, Richard Cant, Ruth Everett, Georgina Lamb, Emily Mytton, Charlotte Randle, Lukas Rolfe, Justin Salinger, Louis Sayers, Sam Smith, Xavier Moras Spencer, Andy de la Tour and Joseph West.
"Medea’s marriage is breaking up. And so is everything else. Testing the limits of revenge and liberty, Euripides’ seminal play cuts to the heart of gender politics and asks what it means to be a woman and a wife."
Euripides' classic play is presented in a new version by Rachel Cusk directed by Rupert Goold. It features design by Ian MacNeil, costume by Holly Waddington, composition and sound by Adam Cork and choreography by Scott Ambler.
Kate Fleetwood is currently appearing in 'High Society' at the Old Vic, having previously been nominated for Best Actress in a Musical at the Olivier Awards for her performance in the National Theatre's 'London Road'.
Tickets for the production are now on sale.
