The graduating students of Bristol Old Vic Theatre School present an urgent, thrilling and epic play for our time. Welcome to Thebes offers a passionate exploration of an encounter between the world's richest and poorest countries in the aftermath of a brutal war.
Faced with an impoverished popuation, a shattered infrastructure and a volatile army, the first democratic president of Thebes, Eurydice, promises peace to her nation. Without the aid of Theseus, the leader of the vastly wealthy state of Athens she doesn't stand a chance. But Theseus is arrogant, mercurial and motivated by profit. A swaggering opposition circles, impatient for insurrection. The body of the former dictator lies unburied.
