Up Pompeii! Audio Recording
Information for Up Pompeii! Audio Recording at The Shaw Theatre, Inner London (Performance). Welcome to ancient Rome, where the steps of the Forum are peopled by nubile slave girls and a range of outrageous characters including Lurcio's owner, Ludicrus Sextus the Senator, his wife Ammonia, his son Nausius and his daughter, Erotica. Lurcio attempts to deliver his prologue and begin proceedings before 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? To mark the 50th anniversary of the first broadcast of 'Up Pompeii' on the BBC's 'Comedy Playhouse', this new feature-length audio revival by Spiteful Puppet will be recorded at two special public performances at London's Shaw Theatre. 'Up Pompeii' is adapted from the successful spin-off stage play by Miles Tredinnick, and was based on the original characters and BBC TV scripts devised by Talbot Rothwell (a scriptwriter for the 'Carry On' films) and Sid Colin. The audio adaptation was written by Barnaby Eaton-Jones, with Daniel McGachy and Iain McLaughlin; by kind permission of Tessa Le Bars Management.
Performers David Benson (Lurcio), Frazer Hines (Ludicrus Sextus), Cleo Rocos (Suspenda), Tim Brooke-Taylor (Captain Treacherus), Jack Lane (Nausius), Madeline Smith (Ammonia), Camille Coduri (Voluptua), Rosa Coduri (Erotica), Jilly Breeze (Senna), Ben Perkins (Comeous), Barnaby Eaton-Jones (Kretinus).
Company Spiteful Puppet.
