Medea of the Laundromat
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Medea, spurned foreign lover of Greek hero Jason, exacts terrible, poetic revenge in a local laundrette. Jason arrives too late to stop the wash cycle. This camp classic by HM Koutoukas, clown prince of New York's 1960s underground theatre scene, is bizarre, hilarious, and deadly serious. A murderous ritual of glitter and soap powder. Just as in its original, Greenwich Village context, admission is free and a hat will be passed at the end for you to pay what you want. 'All Greece will remember Medea and shriek out at the memory of her glamour!'
