Directed By: Christina Sheehan

“The Son of Zeus is back in Thebes.”
After receiving praise from audiences and critics alike for their smash hit productions of Much Ado about Nothing and Romeo & Juliet in 2014, Queens Shakespeare in partnership with What Dreams May Co brings audiences part 2 of its 2015 Season with a controversial, brutal, modern re-imagining of the classical theatre’s most horrifying yet soul searching work. Join us as we shine the looking glass on men worshiped as gods, vengeful gods walking amongst men, and the destructive might of men turned mob. Next up…Euripides’ The Bacchae.
Director Christina Sheehan (Director of 2013’s critically acclaimed Macbeth) brings audiences back to a ravaged world always on the brink of chaos.
