A modern take on Euripides' ancient Greek drama The Bacchae, from writer Che Walker, with songs by Arthur Darvill. Inside Thebes, or maybe present-day London, the woman-hating Pentheus wants the decadent rites honouring Dionysus to stop. Drax and Shug, along with musician Louise and friend Antonia, seek their own forms of retribution. Featuring filthy language and strong content. Not suitable for ages below 16.
