Translated by Colin Teevan
PaperBack (03 May 2002)

Dionysos, the God of wine and theatre has returned to his native land to take revenge on the puritanical Pentheus who refuses to recognise him of his rites. Remorselessly, savagely and with black humour, the God drives Pentheus and all the city to their shocking fate.

This version was specially commissioned by the National Theatre for a production in May 2002, directed by Sir Peter Hall and scored by Sir Harrison Birtwhistle.

'It draws on the contemporary vernacular to ripping, rollicking, rumbustious effect...and [Teevan] has given us a piece of theatre that is wonderfully robust, resolute and resonant' Paul Muldoon
