Sam Smith - Bacchus/Hermaphroditus/Itys
Sam played the menacing, fun loving and debauched God of wine and actors - Bacchus. He presided over his scenes stood high on the bed in a glaring spotlight, his shadow cast dangerously onto the back wall of the set. He spoke his lines with a chishish humour and manipulative innocence, bringing a truely dark side to this often comic figure. Then, as Itys, he got his head ripped off by his Aunt. It is disturbing how quickly Sam could change from playing the God Bacchus to playing a two year old, sucking at his plastic dinosaurs and needing a cuddle from his Mummy!
Sam is a second year English student.
