Bakkhi play explores Grecian
history March 9-19
entheus, the unyielding King of Thebes has banned the ritualistic worship of the Greek God Dionysus. Dionysus appears in human form to entreat Pentheus to stop oppressing his followers.
When Pentheus refuses his request, Dionysus possesses his mind and compels him to seek out the Bakkhai’s sacred ceremonies in the hills above Thebes. Euripides’ electrifying tragedy is a struggle to the death between freedom and restraint, the rational and the irrational, man and god.
