A Bacchant Tale: Day 0

Disclaimer: This is a work of fiction, inspired by being in the chorus of Avant Bard's The Bacchae, which is playing at the Artisphere in Rosslyn, VA, and closes July 1, 2012

Bacchant Captain
Day 1

Hello,

So we're getting ready to head to Thebes to spread the word of Dionysus. We've even got some great slogans on display scrolls, including "Dionysus lives!!" and "Rock Out With Your Bacchout".

He  leads us in spirit and body, but we can't tell the noobs that. Where we're going they think us barbarians. We'll show them. We'll come from the hills in the east, and like the rising sun, hopefully shed a little light on their western sensibilities, teach them to live a little.

Our leader, who wants to remain anonymous when we get there, has alluded to having relatives there he hasn't seen in a while. He says he has plans for them, and we know he knows how to party, so it'll probably be some outlandish and lavish surprise family reunion.

Well, that's it for now. We've got the wine packed and ready to go...and that's really all we ever need!!

-BC
