After several decades, the god Dionysus returns to his birthplace in Thebes in order to clear his mother’s name and reclaim his godly status.  During Dionysus’ absence the kingdom is ruled by the misguided Pentheus who asserts reason and humanism over a belief in the gods.  It was Pentheus’ decision to not allow the worship of the beloved Dionysus in Thebes creating civil unrest.  Dionysus tries to persuade Pentheus to abandon his destructive path, but Pentheus does not relent ultimately forcing Dionysus to wield his power to protect his sacred homeland.
