The Bacchae

"An electrifying piece of work that's part cabaret, all masterpiece." -The Herald

From the moment Scottish actor Alan Cumming's provocative Dionysus is lowered onstage from above, it is clear that this acclaimed National Theatre of Scotland production takes the mask off one of the last great Athenian tragedies. Playwright David Greig's interpretation is a unique take on Euripides that opens the door to a sardonic, contemporary look at the battle between hedonism and repression, making this a Bacchae for the 21st century.
