About this show

When Gods and mortals spar the results set both a king and a city on a path to tragedy. When the citizens of Thebes deny the divinity of Dionysos, he punishes them by inciting the women into a frenzy - driving them from their homes into the mountains where they enact the wild rituals of worship to Bacchus. The young king Pentheus wrestles the god for control of his city, but will his lack of understanding lead to his ruination? An undeniable masterpiece, Euripides' The Bacchae is a primal and powerful play that has remained relevant for 2500 years.
