    The OG femme fatale, Euripedes' sorceress-seducer, Jason's golden goose: Medea was the goddess who could have had it all. But, much like dancer, actress and Gaulier-trained clown April Small, things haven't quite worked out in her favour.

    A heartfelt and humane swansong to a career that never started, join (famously blood-phobic) April as she tackles the injustices faced by women throughout history - including her own. Expect a journey from the highest peaks of foolery to the deepest depths of tragedy, via two years of development, Zoom meetings and a whole lot of home-made prop crafting.

    Passionately performed for all those who have been shut up, shut down or shut out, Bloody Medea!! is a tour-de-force physical comedy for anyone who refuses to go down without a fight... or at least a laugh.

    Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England

    "April is a wonderfully wild, and wickedly funny performer. Bloody Medea is an opportunity to dive into her imagination and experience Greek tragedy through the lens of a clown."

    "Our children live in the most deprived ward in London and their parents cannot afford to pay for the classes and activities many more privileged children enjoy after school and at the weekends. A free-to-access youth group run by a local theatre in a professional setting is an incredible opportunity."
