Dionysus is Getting Impatient
An adaptive creation by the ensemble
Direction and Design by Brenda McLean
“I cannot write a line without that madman standing and staring down at me with those mad eyes.” – Henrik Ibsen, remarking about the portrait of Strindberg above his desk.
“Women, being small and foolish and therefore evil, should be suppressed like barbarians and thieves. She is useful only as an ovary and womb, best of all as a cunt.” – August Strindberg
| || |
Three mistresses on the chopping block intertwine, separate and merge to reveal a freeing of oneself through madness, ecstasy, and death. “We are beautiful, joyous, drunk and free!” An adaptive creation fuelled by Strindberg’s influence on modern drama, Dionysus is Getting Impatient follows the lineage of Strindberg’s Miss Julie (1888) influencing Henrik Ibsen’s Hedda Gabler (1890), Jean Genet’s The Maids (1947), and Jean-Paul Sartre’s No Exit (1944).
What happens when three tragic heroines, the Mistress, The Daughter, and the Maid, are confined together and must play out a deadly game until its ultimate conclusion?
Theatre Incarnate gratefully acknowledges the generous support of
