This modern take on Euripides' The Bacchae at the Globe combines cross-dressing, drug abuse, internet porn and classical myth - all told with a Shakespearian disregard for the usual conventions of time and place. The Lightning Child sees writer Che Walker and director Matthew Dunster reunited after their inventive and anarchic 2008 production, The Frontline, described invariably as "life-affirming" (Time Out) and "superbly orchestrated" (The Times). In ancient Thebes - or is it contemporary London? - worshippers gather to join the orgiastic rites honouring Dionysus. Only the disapproving, woman-hating Pentheus seeks to put a stop to the fun. Elsewhere, in this ancient/modern city, the addicts Drax and Shug and the musician Louise and her flatmate Antonia are drawn towards their own forms of retribution. Fans of Doctor Who will be interested in seeing Arthur Darvill's name on the credits: 'Rory', the annoying companion to Matt Smith's Eleventh Doctor and husband of 'Amy Pond', indeed wrote the music for this intriguing play - which contains filthy language and strong content.

 

About Shakespeare's Globe Theatre

This replica of the Shakespeare's 16th century theatre, reconstructed just 200 yards from its original site, is the brainchild of American actor and director Sam Wanamaker. Built in wood and thatch, using techniques from 400 years ago, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre opened in 1996. More about Shakespeare's Globe Theatre
