The God That Comes

One review said that this was the “must see” play of the season in Toronto. So when we missed it in Toronto, we had to take advantage of the fact that it was coming to Stratford as part of the Forum.

Hawksley Workman tells the story of the Bacchae combining music, sounds, lighting and many terrible ins and leers to great effect. He is clearly a very talented individual, and this is certainly an interesting theatrical experience. I wish I had not had to drive to Toronto immediately after the performance, as I think a glass of wine or two would definitely have added to the ambience. Not that it needed wine to be an interesting show, just that wine would have been appropriate.

    I thought it was rather a dancing bear experience. I didn’t particularly like the show – I was probably too sober – but it was interesting trying to work out how much of the music/soundscape was live: he seemed to be playing the instruments, etc. but things continued after he stopped playing, so was it all recorded? Anyway, there were lots of fans in the audience and I got the impression some had seen the show several times before, so there was obviously something there.
