A riot from start to finish!
14th – 22nd January 2022 at 8:00pm
Matinee on January 22nd at 2:30pm

Duration: 1hr 20mins approx. with one interval.

Up Pompeii is based on the classic British TV comedy series broadcast between 1969 and 1975, starring Frankie Howerd. It’s a hilarious romp through ancient Roman times, focusing on Lurcio, head slave of Senator Ludicrus Sextus, his wife Ammonia, their daughter Erotica and virginal son Nausius. At the start of the play Lurcio tries to deliver his prologue and begin proceedings, but is invariably interrupted by the demands of Ludicrus, Ammonia and all the various other characters in the play and he’s quickly caught up in a myriad of secret liaisons and shenanigans happening in and around his master’s house. As chaos ensues, an increasing rumbling is heard in the distance…

This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Josef Weinberger Limited.

Part of the Barn’s 2021-2022 season.

We are delighted to be planning to re-open in early July with two productions back-to-back to get us all excited and back in our lovely, lonely theatre.  Class will run in the Studio from 6th - 9th of July, and then pass the barton to My Old Lady which will go on the main stage from 10th to 17th, with the usual Sunday break.

We are still being prudent, so not all seats will be on sale just in case, but we hope to be fully back up to capacity when the new season starts in September.

Elsewhere you will find details of the new virtual Director’s meeting - so do join us and decide where and how to get back involved as we get back to what we love doing best!
