This tale of rejection and bloody revenge begins when Dionysus, the son of the god Zeus and the mortal Semele returns from exile with his army of liberated women from Asia to mete out his revenge on his cousin Pentheus, the young king of Thebes who has denied his divinity. The result is a bloody struggle for power and respect that is played out vibrantly and entertainingly, proving this tragedy of the Greek stage still relevant to a contemporary audience.
