The Bacchae of Euripides

Time

7:30pm

Location

Performing Arts Center, Repertory Theatre
By Wole Soyinka
Directed by A. Dean Irby

Nigerian playwright and Nobel Prize winner Soyinka’s adaptation of the most tragic of Greek plays tells the story of the god Dionysus’s revenge on a king who disrespects him. Less solemn and in more modern language than other translations, Soyinka’s version highlights political themes like distrust of foreigners and the dangers of tyrannical leadership.
