I’ve always been careful with gods. I praise them. Sing hymns to them. Pay them full attention. Because if you don’t…well, it doesn’t bear thinking about.

A charismatic preacher arrives in the city of Thebes, accompanied by his frenzied followers. He offers the citizens a choice: acknowledge him as a god, or face punishment beyond comprehension. Reimagined in the mid-20th century American South, The Bacchae is a chilling and darkly humorous play that prompts difficult questions on what it means to believe, to submit, and to resist.
