The God that Comes is a one-man cabaret-rock-&-roll hybrid featuring Juno-winner Hawklsey Workman. This concept album for the stage tells the story of the Greco-Roman god of wine Bacchus (or Dionysus) and uses Euripides' The Bacchae as a primary source. In a world ruled by greed and an oppressive king obsessed with rules and order, the lesser classes have taken to the countryside in a hedonistic spiritual revolution fuelled by wine, ritual madness, and ecstasy. Women, slaves, outlaws, and foreigners have all gone to the mountain to worship the god of wine, and to commune with their animal needs to dance, to lose control, to get drunk, and have sex. The king rails against the protesters, leading to a bloody conclusion.
