Powerfull intensive exploration of Bakkhai

“Realized beautifully in a savage, wildly imaginative and contemporary fashion by director Jillian Keiley, Euripides’ work was first performed in at the Theatre of Dionysus in 405 BC as part of a tetralogy, winning first prize in the competition…

The well-rounded cast features stellar work from Nigel Bennett as Agave’s father Kadmos who, like his daughter, must endure the painful journey descending from sheer joy to soul-destroying reality; Graham Abbey as a boisterous Teiresias; Brad Hodder as the guard, and E.B. Smith, who as the herdsman, provides a wonderfully entertaining narrative of the Bakkhai’s adventures.”
