MÉDÁYÉ: A Rehearsal is a re-reading for the African stage of Euripides' Medea by Prof. Femi Osofisan. This is a new play by Osofisan, currently in its development phase of scripting. The script is still undergoing changes and alterations, so this play-reading should be viewed as part of the script writing development phase, and not a final product. The first readings were performed around Ibadan, Nigeria earlier in 2021.

This play-reading was initially streamed online for a limited period in connection with Act 2 of the ReTAGS Speaker Series (presented online (Zoom meeting) on Monday 16 August 2021 at 15:00 SAST.)

Performed by Faniswa Yisa, Olalekan Balogun, Morapeleng Molekoa, Motlatji Mjamba, Sivenkosi Gubangxa, Lesego Chauke, Thapelo Hlongwane and Elikem Kunutsor. Directed by Mark Fleishman and edited by Themba Stewart.
