National theatre Live was again worth the trip to Waterloo.
This was an outstanding performance by Helen McCrory in her first National Theatre appearance and the National theatre’s first production of Medea.
Even more than usual, the play was dominated by Medea, even though there were at least fifteen other actors in the chorus and playing minor parts. Special mention should be made of Lorna Brown who was The Chorus and spoke most often to the audience.
Danny Supini as Jason is also an actor to watch. But both were totally overshadowed by the anger and anguish of McCrory.
Carrie Cracknell is also a director to watch for.
