BACCHAEFULL (in the city)

Sample from soundtrack 

BACCHAEFULL responds to the Ancient Greek myth with personal explorations of joy, violence, altered states and alter egos.  It is a contemporary piece of total theatre that asks its audience whether they dare surrender to chaos and unreason.

"Dirty Market Theatre Company’s scintillating production is a brilliant exploration of Euripides’ original, played with great conviction." - What’s on Stage 

"Bacchae is shocking and ambiguous, and Dirty Market Theatre's production embellishes the play but preserves its power." - The Culture Show 

"...Dirty Market Theatre is a lively company with good ideas and strong performers. Their innovative dynamism is certainly promising and bodes well for an exciting future."- Curtain Up 

"...the overall impression is one of magnetic chaos and subtle power games. Definitely a play that needs experiencing." - Extra! Extra! 

The Old Abattoir, 187 - 211 St. John's Street, London.
