Doane Theatre presents The Bacchae by Euripides.
In Euripides tale of hubris and tyranny, a disguised Dionysus descends on the city of Thebes to prove Zeus is his father and settle a score with his mortal adversary King Pentheus. His attempts to tear the peoples loyalties away from the king cause a frenzy of emotion that lands Dionysus in prison. But Pentheus misguided attempt to suppress the gods influence tests his leadership and threatens to bring his family to ruin.
Euripides final play is a violent warning against defying the gods. The Bacchae dramatizes the battle between opposing forces in the human psyche, the rational and the frenzied, and the horrific consequences of honor and recognition coming too late.
