The UCL Classical Drama Society and the Department of Greek & Latin are proud to present an amateur production Euripides' Bacchae in association with the Bloomsbury Theatre. Directed by Emily Louizou with associate director Kyriaki Ioannidou, in a modern English translation by James Morwood.

The Bacchae is Euripides’ last play, written shortly before his death. Within it, the Greek tragedian encapsulates what it means to be a human being. It is a unique tragedy that explores the darkest corners of human nature, and its raw and animalistic side. The Bacchae searches deep into the human soul and confronts humans’ worst fears: pain, sorrow, and disgrace. Euripides’ play portrays the undesired emotionalism which can lead human crowds into inhuman conduct.
