A new play coming to the capital is using the tale of Meda from Greek yythology, the woman who famously drowned her children.
As a lens through which to tell a slightly more updated story which will involve bouncing exercise balls and pregnant barbie dolls.
Its creators say that 'Fall Prettier' is about challenging the archetypal narratives assigned to women.
Therese Ramstedt who wrote the piece joined James Dickman along with Zandile Darko who is co-Director of the company Wet Paint and produced the play.
'Fall prettier' is on at the The Space Theatre on the Isle of Dogs from the 25th to the 30th of June.
