The Lyric Hammersmith
When a group of young women discover the mysterious and charming Bacchus, they instantly form an unshakeable devotion to him and each other – it has awakened something inside of them that cannot be contained. Is this a supportive sisterhood or something more dangerous? And as their community strengthens, how do the authorities scramble to regain control?
The Bacchae was commissioned by the Lyric for the SPRINGBOARD 2023-24 trainees.
