THE BAKKHAI

written by Euripides, translated by Anne Carson
directed by Elizabeth van den Berg

This powerful new translation of “The Bakkhai,” Euripides's Greek classic, is by award-winning Classics scholar, poet, and writer Anne Carson.  The story examines what happens after Pentheus has banned the wild, ritualistic worship of the god Dionysos.  A stranger arrives to persuade him to change his mind.  This electrifying tragedy is a struggle to the death between freedom and restraint, the rational and the irrational, man and god.

**The show contains adult material.

April 11 through April 14 at 7:30 p.m. | WMC Alumni Hall
$7 for adults and $5 for seniors, students, military, and the McDaniel College community
