About the Show/Event

Information for Bacchae at The Playhouse, Oxford (Play). Wise?yes, you are wise. In everything except that which needs wisdom. The god Dionysos has come to the city of Thebes, where Pentheus rules with cool composure. The young king seeks to ban all worship of his cousin Dionysos, whom he insists is a fake divinity. Little does he know: the god is watching his every move. Dionysos turns the women of the city mad, and plays cat and mouse with Pentheus. Things are about to change. Euripides' Bacchae, performed and translated ceaselessly since its first production in the 5th century BCE, tells a story of divine revenge. This version, performed in the original Ancient Greek (with English subtitles) explores the boundaries between masculine and feminine, individual and community, human and divine.
Author Euripides.
