Synopsis

Pseudolus, a Roman slave, strikes a bargain with his love-struck young master: in exchange for his freedom, the scheming servant will clear the way for the young man to meet the beautiful maiden he’s admired from afar.

So what if she’s been promised to a jealous (and gigantic) warrior? Pseudolus will try anything – from vestal virgins to eunuchs in tunics – to be free.

And the result according to Clive Barnes in the Post is: “one of those few terrific evenings which really can send you home dancing on air!”

“You’ll laugh your togas off!”
