REVENGE AND SORROW IN THEBES
A Play by Persephone Vandegrift
Directed by Marla Manning
Revenge and Sorrow in Thebes, by award winning local playwright, Persephone Vandegrift, is a down-to-earth adaptation of the Greek classic, The Bacchae of Euripides. Set in ancient Greece, Thebes revisits the story of revenge by the infamous god, Dionysus, on a young, arrogant king and his family for a presumed insult. Thebes is a deeply human archetypal drama that explores the tyranny of ego (mortal and divine) and the struggle of the human condition to understand its connection to the material and spiritual world.
