Based on the original characters devised for the Frankie Howerd BBC comedy, this hilarious romp through ancient Pompeii brings back all the television favourites in this full-length play.
As Lurcio attempts to deliver his prologue and begin proceedings, he’s quickly caught up in the myriad of sexual liaisons in all quarters of his master’s house. Why does Ludicrus not leave for the Senate meeting in Rome? Why does his wife return so quickly from the country? Who will take care of the escaped slave girl, Voluptua, and will Nausius’s love poetry improve? Whilst growing chaos ensues, an increasing rumbling is heard in the distance – what could that possibly be?
A riot from start to finish.
This is an amateur production staged by The Little Theatre Company.

How to get there:
From any of the routes into Burton upon Trent follow signs for the Coors Museum of Brewing. This is situated on the corner of Horninglow Road and Guild Street. Drive along Guild Street, crossing the lights by Frankie & Benny's. At the next crossroads, straight on. You are now in Union Street.
At the next lights, you have a choice of two car parks - right for Sainsbury's (closest) or left for Coopers Square.
It is free to park in the Sainsbury's Car Park after 7pm. The Cooper's Square car park is council owned and you will have to pay until 20:00 (8pm). However, the cost is only £1 for up to 2 hours.
Turn right out of the Burton upon Trent station onto Station Street. Continue until the crossroads and turn right into Union Street. The Brewhouse is on the right hand side after Sainsbury's.
