The Bacchae/Sisters Of Semele
I am estatic to announce my latest theatrical escapade shall be the role of Agave in The Bacchae, in a joint production brought to you by What Dreams May Co and Queens Shakespeare. Uniquely this production shall include a one act world premiere prequel to Euripides' The Bacchae - The Sisters of Semele by Chris Rivera. So in one sitting I have the opportunity to not only tackle a beautiful role that has existed for thousands of years but explore all new elements of her story!
Director Christina Sheehan (Director of 2013’s critically acclaimed Macbeth) brings audiences to the land of Thebes. A young king is newly come into his rule and a young demigod has newly come into his power. The conflict between these two cousins pitting man VS Maenad, and force VS faith. When such squabbles occur between gods and kings the stakes become dangerous, the consequences become deadly.
