When is it our turn?! Three Greek mythological women who have spent way too long in the shadows are given a voice by three composers. Annelies van Parys, Aftab Darvishi and Calliope Tsoupaki shine a new light on Medea, Circe and Penelope respectively, and give them new strength. Gaea Schoeters gave the women touching and liberating words to speak. And stand-up classicist Natalie Haynes introduces you to these characters in a captivating narration.
