The god of wine and theatre, Dionysus, has returned to his birthplace with a hedonistic band of glitter-clad disciples, and the King will do anything in his power to stop them.

As this timeless clash of old and new, establishment and subversion, comes to a head, the entire kingdom of Thebes will be caught in the crossfire.

Featuring 15 actors from across VCA’s Acting companies, graduating Production students and original songs written and performed by graduates of the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music, Theban Dolls is an epic collision of rigorous dialectic and decadent spectacle.

Written and directed by Saro Lusty-Cavallari.
