Lazarus Theatre Company’s season of rebellion and revolution continues with Euripides’ wild and bombastic The Bacchae.
A wanderer returns, driving the people of the city into a ferocious and liberating sexual frenzy. His actions excite, his message thrills, but his mission is revenge.
Euripides’ hedonistic and uncompromising final play comes to the stage in an all-new, devised, ensemble production. Through the use of spoken word, movement and music, this electrifying new production examines belief, sexuality and liberation.
A man is just a man, unless that man is God.
The production marks our return to The Blue Elephant after our sell-out production of Shakespeare’s Richard III in 2014.
The Bacchae marks the ninth Greek play in the Lazarus repertoire after Medea 2007, Elektra 2008, Hecuba 2010, Orestes 2011, Electra 2011, The Women of Troy 2012, Iphigenia in Aulis 2012 and Oedipus 2013.
Lazarus is an award winning Theatre Company, re-imagining and revitalising classic text for a contemporary audience. The Bacchae is directed by Lazarus Theatre Associate Director, Gavin Harrington-Odedra.
