Monster/Woman

Date: 5 Jan 2019

Medusa. Femme fatale, whose beauty made men much harder than they’d like.

Feminist superhero, with snaky locks and deadly gaze not to be messed with. The go-to figure for those seeking to demonise female authority; an image search for any woman politician will unearth her face photoshopped onto Medusa’s head.

The original nasty woman. For thousands of years, the story of Medusa has fascinated and terrified readers. Poets, philosophers and artists have told and retold her story, all attempting to discover the true Medusa.

If only it were that simple.

From award-winning theatre-maker Sabrina D’Angelo comes a surreal black comedy about one character’s wild journey through time and into the unreliable, paradoxical and weird history of herself.
