Director Megan J Riedl.
Medea, a foreigner, who deceived her father and killed her brother to help her husband Jason win the Golden Fleece, now finds herself betrayed by him in favour of a new union with the King’s daughter.
But hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. Megan J Riedl’s modern interpretation of the ancient Greek classic features powerhouse performances by local actors and specially composed live music.
Haunting in its brutality and how it captures the very extreme of human emotions, BNT’s Medea explores the dangers a patriarchal view on strong women and the negative impact of parental conflict on children.
General auditions are held each year so get your name down or resume in if you’re interested in acting.
If you’re interested in back stage, set construction, front of house, lighting, directing or marketing we’d love to hear from you. Each production requires around 30 people behind the scenes so there are plenty of diverse activities to get involved in. Helping out on shows is a great way to meet people, flex your creative muscles, problem solve and be part of the community.
If you’re interested in getting involved but don’t know what to do don’t worry we’ll help you learn the tools of the trade.
Fundraising opportunities are available for each production. Book an entire night or a group of seats for a standard production night.
BNT would like to help your organisation fundraise so please contact us about options.
