Blood. Violence. Passion. Wine. This episode has it all, as we discuss the Stratford Festival production of Bakkhai, a new translation of Euripides’ Bacchae by Ann Carson.

We apologize for a few audio glitches, especially around the eleven minute mark. We thought this episode was worth sharing anyway and hope you enjoy it.

Find out more about the Stratford Festival production of Bakkhai, including photos and a video trailer, on the production’s website.
