The Bacchae: Dionysus goes raving

Bacchae-promo-2-small-1200x614-optimised

Bacchanalia Theatre will be performing an immersive production of Euripides’ The Bacchae, and I have been privileged enough to write for this show. It is both a wild, magical party and a revealing insight into trust, control and gender. Come and join the maenads on the hillsides for a Bacchic 90s rave, then watch Pentheus get torn limb from limb by his mother. What’s not to love?

Two week run at COLAB Factory near London Bridge, don’t miss it!

To whet your appetite, here is a little taste:

You wanted this

You came to me
dripping with honey
unfolding before the sun
skin burning
shielding your eyes.

You wanted me

You invited me in and I came to you.

Remember this:
it was your trembling lips
that formed my name.
I came to you
because you wanted me.
