WOMANS (Like Romans, but with a ‘W’)

Showing: 29/09/2021 to 29/09/2021

It’s 44BC, Ancient Rome. Our hero, Leta, has been declared a traitor by the Roman Senate. She is given a punishment worse than death – ‘Damnatio Memoriae’ – to be erased from history. Whilst noble Gladiators and infamous Emperors around her are becoming legends, her name will be scratched out and forgotten forever. But with the help from some mischievous Muses, she decides to rebel against the Republic.

Join Leta’s determined journey to reclaim her place in the history books, from crashing the Colosseum, to freeing the slaves, she will go to the ends of the empire to make her mark.

Packed full of physical comedy, clowning and original music, WOMANS (Like Romans, but with a ‘W’) is a feast for the eyes and ears.
