An intense and intimate re-imagining of The Bacchae by Euripides.  Pentheus thinks he has things perfectly under control in Thebes until his divine cousin, Dionysus, turns up with malice and anger.  40 audience members, mingle with 6 performers in a hypnotic 60s setting - chaos is unleashed.  Do you deny a god?
