"I still see myself as building my career up. But I’d really like to do comedy next. I’d really like to do a comic film. Or a comic play, or comic TV, just comedy. I may just set myself up at the end of the street and tell a few gags.’"
- Helen McCrory -Time Out
We’re wishing broken legs to all involved in tonight’s press performance of Medea at the National Theatre. We can’t wait for our 4 Sept broadcast!
Here’s a sneak peek of what’s in store…
"Plainingly speaking, there are two reasons why the National theatre production of Medea* is all shades of brilliant: The first reason is Helen McCrory. The second reason is everything else. With a play like Medea, it’s prim and proper that a star dominates the story. To McCrory’s credit she does it open-heartedly, and to the production’s credit, she doesn’t eclipse everyone else."

"I was never really interested in fashion when I was young. I was very angry as a teenager, always going on student marches against the poll tax and falling in love with punks."
"I think The National has always been incredibly special to me, and to play The National’s first Medea is incredible… incredible" (x).
