Theater for the New City, (Crystal Field, Artistic Director), Presents:

Wine, Sex, & 
O'erweening Hubris!

In Ancient Greece, a young and arrogant Dionysus is tasked by Zeus with rescuing his mother Semele from Tartarus; if he succeeds, he will be elevated to Olympus with the other gods. With his slave Xanthias, he goes on a queer adventure that will humble him greatly. Inspired by Suppressed Greek Mythology and the Ridiculous Theatre style of Charles Ludlam.
Nothing but Thunder contains nudity, sexuality, coarse language, and verse drama, and is NOT suitable for children.

Cross-Eyed Bear Productions is Excited to be partnering with Yondr on Nothing but Thunder! We'll be securing phones before the show to prevent any leaked nudes or intimate moments. We'll all get to live in the moment and experience the special wonder of this play. This is the first time Yondr has approved a production this size.
