A new adaptation of 'The Bacchae' by Margaret Baldwin, with Klimchak and Israeli performer Ofir Nahari!

About the Project

A local and international collaboration four years in the making, 'The Followers' is a new adaptation of Euripides' The Bacchae, led by a quartet of accomplished artists including   7 Stages’ Co-Artistic Director Michael Haverty, playwright Margaret Baldwin, composer Klimchak and Israeli performer Ofir Nahari. Together, they will create a multi-disciplinary production telling this timeless story of blind faith, abuse of power, and the tragic cycle of vengeance. 7 Stages' re-interpretation of this ancient story brings Dionysus’ miracles and transformations, told offstage in the original greek, onstage through the creative power of theatre. An earthquake topples the palace, a pack of hounds chases the King in his dreams, a herd of cattle is ripped to pieces by crazed maenads. The citizens of Thebes must choose between two corrupt futures: the ratcheting violence of the status quo or following an ecstatic submissive movement, chained to Dionysus’ godlike whim.
