Jeremy Seghers Presents THE BACCHAE by Euripides

Fifth century playwright Euripides reinvented Greek tragedy with his controversial, groundbreaking play The Bacchae. As an origin story of Dionysus, we are introduced to one of the most famous and infamous gods in Greek mythology as he and his cult arrive in the city of Thebes, prepared to make a believer of its king... or make him pay.

Like the notorious god of wine, debauchery, and theatre, The Bacchae is a story of duality, sensuality, and the intoxicating effects of power. In this site-specific, outdoor staging, guests are asked to stay in their cars once they have parked, roll the windows down, and enjoy the one-act play from a safe distance. Think of it as drive-in live theatre reflecting the origin of the art form through a modern rearview mirror.
