Pseudolus

McGill Classics Play

The McGill Classics Play presents Plautus's Pseudolus!

A worthy but impecunious young man has met the girl of his dreams. There's just one hitch - she's a courtesan, and she's about to be sold to a rich soldier from abroad. Can a wily, witty, fast-taking servant find a way to bring this farce to a happy ending? The 2,000-year-old Roman comedy gets a 1930s makeover in this new translation by Celia Taylor and Manuela Galindo. Recommended for ages 12+.

There will be four evening performances at Mainline Theatre and one afternoon matinee on February 3 at the Victoria Hall Community Centre. (Victoria Hall is an accessible venue; Mainline is unfortunately not.) Tickets are $15 for adults, $12 for students and seniors. They'll be available online shortly, and will also be available at the door.
