The Bacchae

By Euripides

In a version by David Greig

One of the greatest of all Greek tragedies – savage, comic and intensely lyrical – The Bacchae powerfully dramatises the conflict between the emotional and rational sides of the human psyche. The magnetic Dionysos – icon, hedonist, god – returns home with his cult of female followers to exact his revenge on Thebes, unleashing the full force of female ecstasy on the city.
