Adapted from the Roman comedies of Plautus by Phil Willmott, with original music by Theo Holloway
Time: 18:00 – 19:30
This joyous family show invites you to a bustling Roman town as everyone anticipates the return from war of the big-headed soldier, Milos Colossus. But if he's expecting everything to be as it was when he left for battle he's in for a shock. Expect audience participation, sing-a-longs, mistaken identities and slapstick galore as a colourful cast of clever slaves, daring lovers and cunning tricksters take full advantage of the chaos that peace brings.
Adapted by Lisa Kuma from the Ancient Greek Trojen War trilogy by Euripides
Time: 20:00 – 22:30
As the skies darken so does our story. In some of the most powerful drama ever written, Euripides spins his gripping account of the courageous women on opposing sides of the Trojen War; their sacrificies, triumphs and tradegies. This new adaptation of Iphigenia at Aulis, Hecuba and The Trojan Women will resonate dramatically against the backdrop of international conflicts today.
