Housed in Frankston but performing and involving people from all over Melbourne, our company is both accessible and affordable as well as award-winning, for its innovative interpretations and recontextualisations of (mostly) classical works. Given that Ancient Greece was the birthplace of Western Theatre, the company takes its name from the patron of Drama – Dionysus.
