By Euripides and translated by David Stuttard. Directed by Jeremy Davies.
Dionysus, the Ancient Greek god of wine and revelry, seeks revenge on those who do not honour him. He uses his female followers (the bacchae) in a tale of divine retribution, focussed on the king of Thebes, his cousin Pentheus.
This is a staged reading, using video and original music to enhance the drama of the scenes.
Please note that there will be two performances of the staged reading at 3.00pm and 7.30pm.
