APGRD archive items relating to numerous productions of Medea

Medea, a performance history

Medea, a performance history is the first of the APGRD's interactive/multimedia eBooks. The eBook draws on a unique collection of archival material and research at the APGRD and uses images, film, unique interviews and digital objects to tell the story of a play that has inspired countless interpretations, onstage and onscreen, in dance, drama and opera across the globe from antiquity to the present.

DOWNLOAD the iBook - for Apple

The iBook version is available for free on Apple Books either as a full-length book, or three quicker-to-download instalments comprised of two related chapters from the original. Use the following links to download them now:

DOWNLOAD the eBook - for all other devices

An EPUB version of the original, full-length ebook for all other devices, is free to download directly here: DOWNLOAD EBOOK

The EPUB3 version, which due to the limitations of the software has fewer interactive features than the iBook, should be compatible with most standard ebook-readers. The two most popular ebook readers, which can both be downloaded for free, are Readium (an app which operates inside Google Chrome) and Adobe Digital Editions 4.5 (older versions of ADE will need to be upgraded to view APGRD ebooks). Once you have an appropriate ebook-reader installed, download the EPUB file via the download link above and then open with your preferred reader. Our thanks to Chris Jennings for converting our iBook into an EPUB.

Please see Agamemnon, a performance history for our second interactive/multimedia ebook.
