Agave vs The Lion


Flying Solo! Presents


Agave is under siege. A violent, zealous, hateful male voice is speaking directly to her via her laptop seeking to scare her, enticing her to embrace his fanaticism. Will he succeed? Inspired by the play The Bakkhai (Euripides, 405 BCE), by tackling religious ecstasy and violence Agave vs The Lion asks, what if Agave was a modern-day woman grappling with the modern-day lion of Christian nationalism? Confronting what we become when our fear of the other turns to rage, Agave struggles to protect her world from hatred and bigotry without losing herself.
