Staged with a large Greek chorus and half masks, Euripides' most poetically beautiful, as well as thematically difficult, play is given a fresh translation. The Bacchae is a religious ecstasy full of sensuality, faith and argument that comes to life in Saltbox Theatre Collective’s first production. Translated by Chicago’s Dr. Nicholas Rudall (Court Theatre, University of Chicago), The Bacchae centers around the conflict between God Dionysis and King Pentheus of Thebes.
