The Bacchae (Part 2) at La Mama Theatre
About Bacchae (Part 2)
A new exploration of the Bacchae myths, steeped in ritual and rebellion. A female & non binary identifying cast tell stories of women and cults who have challenged the patriarchal status quo throughout history.
Forget the original Bacchus, where the women wait offstage while men try and fail to tell their story. In Robert Reid’s epic new text the women take centre stage en masse! This fierce retelling, inspired by Richard Schechner’s Dionysus in ‘69, weaves in classic and pop culture references from Sophocles to The Manson Family. Join the Cult.
This production is shown in two parts over two weeks. Come the first week to see part one & the second week to see part two.
Alternatively, come on the weekend and see part one at 5pm and part two at 8.30pm
