Alison Darcy is a living legacy. She has gone far beyond being the daughter of directors Maurice Podbrey (Centaur founder) and Elsa Bolam (Geordie founder) to becoming one of the finest director/artistic director/actors in the country. Her company, Scapegoat Carnivale, scored huge with their production of Medea, and is once again tackling the Greeks with The Bacchae.
CHARPO: What is your role for this production?
the team we have on this is insanely good
CHARPO: And why Bacchae?
CHARPO: Were you happy with both the production and reception to Heretics of Bohemia [the company's last production]?
The Bacchae is at Centaur Theatre October 11-20
