In Ancient Greece, a young and arrogant Dionysus is tasked by Zeus with rescuing his mother Semele from Tartarus; if he succeeds, he will be elevated to Olympus with the other gods. With his slave Xanthias, he goes on a Queer adventure that will humble him greatly. Inspired by Suppressed Mythology and the Ridiculous Theatre style of Charles Ludlam.
Nothing but Thunder contains nudity, sexuality, coarse language, and verse drama, and is not suitable for children.
Cast: Matt Biagini* (The Enlightenment of Mr. Mole), Katrina Dykstra, Spencer Gonzalez, Eric Hedlund (The Douchegirl Play (Better Name Pending)), Olivia Kinter (Search Party), Kenny Wade Marshall* (Pirates of Penzance Live-on-Deck), and Alyssa Simon* (The Underpants Godot, The Marriage of Alice B. Toklas).
