Soyinka's Bacchae at the National Theatre

A lecture on the 1971 National Theatre production of Euripides' The Bacchae adapted by Wole Soyinka and directed by Roland Joffe.


Adam Lecznar, a doctoral student in Classics at University College London, discusses Wole Soyinka's The Bacchae of Euripides: A Communion Rite (1973) and explores how Soyinka's drama develops and questions Euripides' original ancient Greek tragedy. Lecznar explores the influence of the philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche on this first production of Soyinka's play, the National's commissioning of Soyinka, and charts the interplay between African and European sources
