Bacchaefull archiveWhat happens when people try to exclude the irrational, chaotic and unseen from their lives? The citizens of Thebes find out when Dionysus, god of creativity and chaos, arrives there only to be met with rejection by his mother's family and with violent intolerance by his cousin Pentheus, king of the city. Dionysus wreaks a terrible vengeance that leads to madness, destruction and murder. Along the way the myth pulls in caretakers, secretaries, bartenders, shop-workers, call centre staff, IT workers, wage slaves and the jobless, freeing them from the chains of everyday commitment to find the Bacchant inside them... But what are the rewards - and what's the price - of surrendering to Dionysus?
