Resistance. Dishonor. Torture. Power. The citizens of Fuenteovejuna are fed up. Their commander is raping their women, and murdering anyone who stands in his way.

A battle is raging in Thebes. On one side, a king. On the other, a god. It’s man versus nature in Nobel Prize–winning Nigerian playwright Wole Soyinka’s visceral drama of vengeance and defiance. Brimming with Soyinka’s poetic, muscular voice, The Bacchae of Euripides is a dark, unflinching look at humanity’s power to imprison, test, and endure.
