BakkhaiBen Whishaw makes his Almeida debut in Anne Carson's new version of Bakkhai, which also welcomes Bertie Carvel back to the theatre to play Pentheus. Euripides's electrifying tragedy sees Pentheus ban the wild, ritualistic worship of the god Dionysos but a stranger tries to change his mind. A struggle to the death between freedom and restraint, the rational and the irrational, man and god. James Macdonald directs three actors and a chorus to echo the original performance model.

 

About Almeida Theatre

Along with the Donmar Warehouse, the Almeida is the most critically praised theatre in Britain. After Jonathan Kent took over in 1990, it had 14 West End transfers in 12 years, and early booking for tickets became essential - by the time the reviews came out, the run was usually sold out.
