The sole purpose of her physical and spiritual existence is for love, or more precisely to serve and care for her husband forever.  ] in order to hold on to her husband. Hence love seems to have a dual nature. 9 The construction of many female characters in Thai court and folk theatre traditions reveals an anxiety toward women who not only appear to fulfill the ideal feminine stereotype but who actually do fulfill it. A duality haunts their theatrical representation, suggesting that underneath the lovely and loving exterior lurks a frightening succubus ready to destroy not only the men they love but the whole social structure.

The plot, which centers on Pentheus being punished for not acknowledging Dionysus as a true deity, ran into problems with officials in the Ministry and almost every aspect of the play had to be compromised to allow the production to proceed. The authorities insisted that because Islam is the state religion and accepts the existence of no god but Allah, Dionysus had to be recast as a demigod, a move that undermined the central point of the play.
