This chapter reviews Murray's involvement with the theatre. It situates his translations in the performance traditions of early 20th-century England and also in a wider context, including that of the Salvation Army and the influence of Nietzsche. The chapter ends by exploring the influence of Murray's translations on the reworking of Greek tragic plots by the Nigerian writer, Wole Soyinka.

Keywords:   Murray, Bacchae, theatre, Major Barbara, George Bernard Shaw, Wole Soyinka, Nietzsche
