A side-splitting comedy romp, lovingly ripped off from the Roman comedies of Plautus by Phil Porter (The Christmas Truce, 2014; A Mad World My Masters, 2013).

A wily servant and a pair of wronged young lovers team up to bamboozle a pompous general in this riotous new farce. Dodgy disguises, comic capers and a monkey create pandemonium as the tricksters try to save the girl, free the servant and live to tell the tale!

Director Janice Honeyman (who directed Antony Sher in the Baxter Theatre’s 2009 production of The Tempest in association with the RSC) piles on the physical fun in this world premiere production.
