Book: The Bacchae (Euripides)

Dionysos comes to the "unbelieving" Thebes. Not a happy camper. His revenge is brutal.

First greek tragedy I've read in English - Wikipedia at hand helped quite a bit. Structure is interesting, and the subject deeply disturbing. I wonder if one could make a modern day version of it. The translation by Sutherland is very readable - the notes in the end are more for the director of the play than answering many questions.
