Bacchus challenges Shakespeare for the hearts and minds of the Shaky Town Players -
“You are not the Lord, you are Penthius. And this is not Taming of the Shrew, it is The Bacchae. You think that you can tame MY shrew? Not you, and not your army of parrot-headed monkey-do’s. Your pirate sun is going down. When the morning star awakens, L.A. will be Bacchus Town.”
Starring 19 year old Sandra Tucker, The Queen of Pentacles
Soundtrack: “Hero can you hear me?”, “Bacchus in the Bu”
Bacchus Town is a writing experiment. I will be writing in a form I call “prose-play”, prose that can be reformatted as a screenplay without changing the text. I will be trying to complete a 15 page “chapter” (Act) every week, and the project goal is to end up with a three screenplay trilogy that is also a 360 page novel, and the pilot for the Bacchus Town series.
