Power. Unbound. The demi-god Dionysos has arrived in Thebes in human form with vengeance in his heart. Derided as an imposter by the city’s ruler, King Pentheus, this charismatic stranger has induced madness in the Theban women, who have run off to join his cult of female followers, the Bakkhai. The god of wine, ecstasy and fertility lays bare the duality of our natures: that each of us, no matter how civilized, has a wild beast within.
