Bacchai archive'Euripides' Bacchai is a short, sharp play, and one of the most challenging ever written. Whenever it is performed, it appears hideously timely. Man's quest for faith comes from an impulse bred of terror and of hope. If often leads to consequences as horrible as they are wonderful. Compassion breeds cruelty, redemption produces persecution. The play deals with extremes; faith is opposed by instinct, reason by emotion, male by female, chaos by order, West by East and life by death.' Peter Hall
