Pentheus has banned the wild, ritualistic worship of the god Dionysos. A stranger arrives to persuade him to change his mind. Euripides’ electrifying tragedy is a struggle to the death between freedom and restraint, the rational and the irrational, man and god. The gruesome conflict is played out on and with the bodies of the Bakkhai, Dionysos' female followers. 

This production features adult themes and violent imagery and may not be suitable for all audiences.
