FOUR OF SWORDS’ interpretation of Euripides’ MEDEA (a semi-sequel to our own JASON & THE ARGONAUTS) is back for two weeks this April at BEER QUARRY CAVES!

MEDEA played to rave reviews and sold out crowds at the Caves when we were there in November. Audiences were enraptured by the spooky candlelit subterranean setting, the spine-tingling choral singing, the grotesque masked chorus, and of course the tour de force title-character portrayal by FOUR OF SWORDS co-founder Sarah White.

“Utterly absorbing, I forgot about the rest of the audience around me and I felt as if I was spying on a very realistic domestic. All the actors were amazing but Medea stole the show; whatever the superlative of amazing is with bells on!”
audience member feedback

As with all our shows, places are limited and early booking is advised. Audience members will be on their feet for the play’s 75 minute run time, so comfortable footwear is a must. Wrapping up warm is also advisable, and a torch to guide you back safely to your car at the end of the night might also be a good idea. Be advised that the show is too creepy for under 11s.

Dates: 11th-21st April 2018  Times: 7pm & 9pm  Price: £15
Location: Beer Quarry Caves, Quarry Lane, Beer, Seaton, Devon EX12 3AT

  1. Fab theatre last night in Exmouth, Devon, at Rolle College. Similar energy to the awesome RED DOG Theatre Company​. And also to the RSC’s anglo-indian ‘Midsummers Night Dream’ some years ago.
    ‘Jason and the Argonauts’ is set in disused college building, just like they did with ‘Gawain and the Green Knight’ last yea at Poltimore. Good acting, processing room to room, inside and outside: one of the best theatre groups I know

  2. Wow! what a tense production in such a fitting venue.
    Four of Swords created an atmosphere of suspense that made the heart beat faster in anticipation of the next “fright”. A great performance.

  3. Production of Macbeth absolutely fantastic, location genius. I was spellbound as we moved from cave to cave. Timing superb, delivery delicious, I had to remind myself to breath. I have raved to everyone that will listen to me. Only wish it were not sold out so I could watch again and again and…..

  4. lucky to catch Jason and the Argonauts on Thus at the Tropicana. Have to see what happens to Medea now, brilliant venue for a brilliant show. You made the most of the promenading making us all feel really close up to the fighting and anguish. Crikey! poor old Medea. Jason had all the lines (‘Your making this up!’ and ‘Golly!’ – after a pretty mental fight scene) but the soul of the show was in Medea. Just hope it doesn’t go too badly for her in the future……….(how much worse can it get!) You were all fantastic, thanks for a brilliant, varied, funny, emotional, wacky and dramatic show. All the best!

  5. From Kevin Cahill
    Not a play I normally take to but this was quite off the planet. The acting was of West End quality as was the production. The lighting of the caves for the event was simply magical, even for adults. It was an experience rather than a mere play. I think it will go into the book of special memories for every one who saw and heard it. For all the digital gizmos now available for cinema and theater this play and this production show that there is no digital substitute for the real thing, face to face. Congratulations to all the cast for a truly memorable evening.

  6. Amazing performance of Media in Beer caves. A genius stage set. Dramatic, atmospheric and supremely accomplished performances. The choral chanting was perfect for the caves and utterly enthralling. Such a great experience from start to finish – loved it.
    Outstanding in every way.
