    DescriptionThis review provides a rigorous critique of CSU's Theatre/Media reinvention of Euripide's ancient play 'The Bacchae'. It goes into detail concerning the stagecraft as well as the acting. It addreses the play's contemporary relevance in light of social media technologies and its impact upon culture. Particularly a new world order where 'selfies' are the norm and where narcissism is enacted through technology. There is a cautionary tale here about excess. Excess when it comes to mass consumption as it is mediated through digital technologies including facebook and twitter that have come to shape our relationships to others as well as to ourselves.
