karaoke Bacchae (2015)
Euripides’ tragedy, The Bacchae, in a sports bar on karaoke night during the Stanley Cup. Karaoke is canceled to watch the game. The god Dionysus takes the human form of Iggy Pop and leads a horde of drunken sorority girls and cocktail waitresses into a battle of submission for control of the karaoke machine, against the bar's sado-masochistic management. Sung and shouted under the ultimate karaoke playlist, driven by dance, and featuring text from Drunk J. Crew, deranged sorority girl emails, and a sexually frustrated drunken high school english teacher.

“...lively and at times raucous..."
New York Times
"This strikes right at the heart of the drunken, uncontrolled, and occasionally rageful aura of the god of wine and theater...your memories of the event will last forever."
