Euripides trans Laurence Senelick

Published by Broadway Play Publishing

Large Mixed Cast
Euripides' classical tragedy skillfully translated by Laurence Senelick

"a tragic parody of a comic theme, which we have in THE BACCHAE [THE BAKKHAI], is really troublesome, and furthermore rare before our time and the great use of it by Samuel Beckett THE BACCHAE makes it plain that some uses of comedy do not diminish tragedy or `relieve' it but indeed augment it" ~ Donald Sutherland

"The most obvious influence of Euripides's BAKKHAI on Christian mythology lies in its concept of Dionysos as the suffering Son of God" ~ Arthur Evans

"Sometimes Euripides seems like a religious man, and again, like a charlatan. Of course he was neither. He was a playwright" ~ John Jay Chapman
