Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Dionysus comes to Thebes, all but young Penthus feel his worship harmless. Infuriated, Dionysus hypnotizes Penthus and sends him among the revelers, where he is killed. Penthus's mother, in a Dionysian-induced frenzy, believes a lion has been killed and proudly carries its head home. Only when she recovers does she realize it is the severed head of her son.

Synopsis:

In this play, a son is torn to pieces by his mother at the whim of Dionysos.

Synopsis:

Euripides' classic drama about the often mortifying consequences of the unbridled--and frequently hysterical--celebration of the feast of Dionysus, the God of wine.
