The Bacchanals
  • Edinburgh Fringe


A Comedy

Tell me what they are those rituals of yours?

Mikra Theatricals invite you to draw back the curtain and take a peek backstage, into a world of paranoia, madness and drama. The Bacchanals is a dark comedy, which toys with classical traditions and texts, whilst exploring the gender politics of theatre. A piece of new writing, inspired by Euripides\' Bacchae, which asks: what happens if you trap a chorus of actresses in a small room, throw in some Greek mythology for good measure and turn the pressure up?
