A lyrical exploration of motherhood, myth and madness, inspired by the wild seas and folktales of the Shetlands and Orkney. We follow Nina in this modern retelling of the Medea tragedy, exploring themes of postnatal depression and how a mother can, and can’t, shield her children from her own battles with mental health.
Performed as a rehearsed reading with a Q&A afterwards, with cast and award-winning writer D R Hood.
