Inspired by Bacchus, the Roman god of wine and theatre, Theatre Bacchus is a professional live theatre located in the Town of Lincoln – between Hamilton and Niagara-on-the-Lake – in the heart of Niagara’s wine country. We provide an enhanced theatre-going experience combining live theatre with local wine, craft beer, or local spirits in a relaxed, ‘hosted’ environment. BUT, given the current COVID-19 situation, we have moved to Radio Drama!
Theatre Bacchus presents, Theatre of the WINE: An Evening With Poe!
Featuring some of his most famous works: "The Tell-Tale Heart"; "The Cask of Amontillado", "The Raven"; and "Ligiea", these four stories from Edgar Allan Poe are told in the form of a staged radio drama, complete with sound effects and music. AND EACH of them just happens to reference WINE!
The prisoners of Leverett Street Jail, Death Warrant Division, await their fates as two of the doomed souls tell their stories, and we enter the mind of a third.“Ligiea” is told through the eyes of a member of the Golden Raven Society. The Golden Raven Society is an organization established for persons with a fascination for the occult and the supernatural to come together and share in their passions on the subject. We are told, by the Baroness Ritzner Von Jung, Grand Master of the society, that it was Poe himself who created the Golden Raven Society.
