Pseudolus

Stephanie 

My project is based on an ancient Roman play written by Plautus. The play follows the path of a cheeky slave in his adventures to help his master. I am trying to promote ancient drama in an accessible way for a modern audience. I will be doing this by having a modern script as well as an interactive performance. The nature of ancient comedy is very farcical whilst remaining witty. I have built on this by using slapstick humour. Thanks to the IATL project, I will be able to turn my performance into a production by adding lighting, sound and costume. This will help distinguish the Classics' play as an established event whilst bringing the combination of old and modern into a dynamic and exciting play.
