Stephen Sondheim’s, fast-paced, witty, irreverent farce is one of the funniest musicals ever written.

A joyous, musical romp through Rome that has the infectious energy of classic vaudeville, desperate lovers, scheming neighbours and secrets under every toga. 

A non-stop laugh-fest in which a canny slave Pseudolus, struggles to win the hand of Philia, a beautiful but not too bright virgin, for his young master, Hero, in exchange for freedom.

The plot twists and turns with cases of mistaken identity, cross-dressing and scene after scene of double takes and double meanings. "Something for everyone, a comedy tonight!”
