A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum

A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum delivers an evening (or afternoon) of unconditional and frivolous fun. Drawing from the Roman comedies of Plautus, A Funny Thing is a riotous farce. Pseudolus, a slave desperate for his freedom, is left in charge of his master’s young son, Hero. It seems that Hero has fallen in love with a beautiful courtesan and promises Pseudolus his freedom if he can arrange a marriage under his father’s nose. But this clever slave cannot begin to predict the madness that ensues as he tries to bring the lovers together.
