A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum
About this production
An amateur production by arrangement with Josef Weinberger Ltd
A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO THE FORUM is based on the tales of Titus Macchius Plautus centring around Pseudolus the “clever slave”. Pseudolus is desperate for his freedom and his quest leads him to wreck havoc in the lives of the lovesick Hero and the beautiful object of his affections, Philia, as well as Senex the “dirty old man” and his demanding wife, Domina, not to mention their hapless slave in chief Hysterium. Throw in Erronius who is looking for his children - stolen in infancy by pirates, the cunning Marcus Lycus, dashing Captain Miles Gloriosus, a dozen captivating courtesans and the versatile Proteans, and you have a recipe for an evening full of “Comedy Tonight”.
