Born to megastar parents, teenagers Eriopis and Polyxenos have a lot to live up to – and a lot to feel angry about. Their father Jason betrayed their mother, they’ve had to leave Europe, they’re displaced, they’re alienated and now they’re on their own.

But they’re fed up of being ‘the foreign kids’. They’ve had enough. They sit at the front of the class in their new school and spit out the story of who they really are to anyone who’ll listen.

This punchy, modern play by Austrian playwright Holger Schober offers a completely new angle on the age-old Greek myth of Jason and Medea, retelling their story through their children’s eyes. The audience sit at school desks as the new kids take centre stage and their story unravels.
