MEDEA

FOUR OF SWORDS’ interpretation of Euripides’ MEDEA (a semi-sequel to our own JASON & THE ARGONAUTS) played to rave reviews & sold out crowds at The Tropicana, Weston-super-Mare, Cleeve Abbey & Beer Quarry Caves.

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.

There are some stunning performances and truly memorable moments with the whole being greater than the sum of its parts. This Medea is an exceptional constellation spear-headed by its alpha star, Sarah White.
Anna Marks, Remote Goat

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!

Just as Summer time is flourishing on the earth, FOUR OF SWORDS desires to lead you into the underworld of BEER QUARRY CAVES for their own unique and blood-curdling version of The Scottish!

This subterranean production is a reprisal of FOUR OF SWORDS’ hit 2014/16 show, and presents the Witches as Viking priestesses and goddesses of Destiny who guide the audience through the labyrinthine caverns of Macbeth’s homicidal ambition. The show features Shamanic techniques, haunting live music, gruesome film projections, Icelandic chanting, a splash or two of gore and even some Highland sword-dancing.

The company deserve huge applause – there were strong performances all round with too many stand-out moments to describe.
Anna Marks, Remotegoat

The connected caves – complete with bats – echo with a constant drip-drip-drip, perfectly conjuring the chill dankness of a medieval Scottish castle.
Belinda Dillon, Exeunt Magazine

As with previous FOUR OF SWORDS productions, audiences will be standing and walking for the duration of the 1 hour 15 min show. Please wear sensible footwear, warm clothing and bring a torch to help you find your way to and from the car! Please be advised that this show is too creepy for under 11s.
