"At the end of this thrilling and merciless production you leave the theatre feeling both appalled and strangely elated – the sure sign that a tragedy has hit its mark." Charles Spencer for The Telegraph

"The play's tragic force emerges strongly and the production's climax seems better suited to modern tastes than Euripides's original." Michael Billington for The Guardian

"The heroine's formidability and vulnerability are brilliantly entwined in McCrory's performance." Paul Taylor for The Independent

"It’s McCrory’s performance that makes the production satisfyingly muscular. She captures Medea’s animal savagery and the agony of being transfixed by her own grim destiny." Henry Hitchings for The Evening Standard

"Here is an exciting, fashionable production of a horrid play." Quentin Letts for The Daily Mail
