Lazarus back with The Bacchae

Fringe theatre’s leading lights Lazarus Theatre Company return to the limelight after their critically-acclaimed production of The Caucasian Chalk Circle with a brand new adaptation of Euripides’ final play – the sexual and liberating The Bacchae. Directed by Gavin Harrington-Odedra, the production will see the The Blue Elephant Theatre transformed into the stadium of Dionysus.

A wanderer returns, driving the people of the city into a ferocious and liberating sexual frenzy. His actions excite, his message thrills, but his mission is revenge. Euripides’ hedonistic and uncompromising final play comes to the stage in an all-new, devised, ensemble production. Through the use of spoken word, movement and music, the production will examine belief, sexuality and liberation.

The Bacchae plays from the 19th April through to 7th May at The Blue Elephant Theatre, Tuesday – Saturday at 8pm.

The season of Rebellion and Revolution will continue in late August with a production of John Ford’s controversial Tis Pity She’s a Whore, which will see Lazarus Theatre Company return to the Tristan Bates Theatre.
