Presented by Bristol Old Vic
Written by Adam Peck
Directed by Toby Hulse

Athens is cursed! King Theseus has only one desire: a son to inherit the throne, but every child born to him perishes after only a few hours. The women in his life watch on, powerless to provide him with the thing he wants most.

Despair leads Theseus to seek terrifying answers, and a truth which will bring him eye-to-eye with the most hideous creature in the ancient world - Medusa! Can he face his fears and break the curse?

A brand new legend inspired by Greek myths, this Bristol Old Vic production of Medusa is high-octane storytelling theatre at its best. From the creators of last year's sell-out success Minotaur, don't miss this exhilarating family show perfect for ages 7 years and older.

This brand new play has been created in close consultation with KS2 children and staff, and arrives at Bristol Old Vic after touring to over twenty schools in Sedgemoor.

From the team behind Minotaur feat. in Bristol 24/7's Best of Bristol Theatre 2014
