Forum Photoshoot!

A few of us got together for some Roman shenanigans in fabulous Wrest Park last weekend, trying to capture the madcap spirit of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum without frightening the visitors!

We romped around the Roman Columns of the Bowling Green House (very grand), said hello to a few urns and outdid Benny Hill chasing each other around assorted statues. We even persuaded a few visitors to come to the show! If you were wondering why there was a Roman Soldier ambling alongside the Long Water, now you know.

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum is a fast paced farce that promises to have audiences rolling on the floor. Taken straight from the roots of comedy, Forum combines the ancient comedies of Plautus with a vaudevillian delivery. The Slave Pseudolos schemes to win the heart of the beautiful virgin, Philia, for his young master, Hero. In exchange, Hero will grant Pseudolos his freedom once and for all. However, things are never as easy as they seem. Chaos ensues with hair-brained schemes, cases of mistaken identity, slamming doors and convoluted plot twists. One of the funniest musicals ever written, Forum promises '"something for everyone: a comedy tonight!"
 On at the Queen Mother Theatre, Hitchin from the 4th - 7th October, including a Saturday Matinee.
