This is Not Medea
  • London Fringe

What happens when a walking Greek tragedy arrives in Brexit Britain? 'I am an actress. Moved to the UK about 4 years ago with my boyfriend who's also an actor. But the play we were supposed to do got postponed due to the pandemic so to make ends meet... I got stuck between art and responsibilities.' You know about Medea? She's the one who killed her children. This is Not Medea is a dark comedy written by an immigrant from the EU with a few stories to share about life in Britain today: passports, pints, artists, lockdowns, lack of toilet paper and ... murder. Latecomers may not be admitted. Please arrive in good time for the start time of 7.45pm. Under 18s are not permitted into the theatre for this performance. No re-admittance once the performance has commenced. Refunds and exchanges are not available.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
