She is one of the most infamous women in literature, the grotesque beast with her hair full of snakes and a gaze that turns men to stone, but who is Medusa? Everyone knows the name, but few actually know the story of this once mortal woman turned to the malevolent creature that we see depicted across decades of art and writing. Behind the image burned into history, a (very human) voice is buried in layers upon layers of unrelenting narrative spun by those who prefer we believe she is the MONSTER.
From the creative minds behind the award-winning productions 'ver·i·si·mil·i·tude' and 'Hysteria', Direct Theatre Collective presents a bold new musical production based on the story of Medusa featuring original music and lyrics from Florence Reiher and Jill Raymond.
