BREAKDOWN
BETWEEN GODS AND KINGS presents a twisted modern adaptation of The Bacchae by Euripides. An original rock score to brings to life the conflict between two long lost cousins, the unyielding king Pentheus and a vengeful god Dionysus, both desperately fighting to hold on to power of their kingdom. The king's strong-willed mother, Agave, and the people of Thebes are caught in the crossfire of this epic battle. How far will they go to protect their family name, and at what cost? BETWEEN GODS AND KINGS asks, is your life really yours when you’re stuck between gods and kings?
