In ancient Rome, a group of early Christians wait to be thrown to the lions in the Colosseum. Some are more eager to be martyrs than others; the Romans just think they are all crazy. Shaw takes the fable of the man who pulled the thorn from the lion’s paw as the starting point for one of his funniest plays. This revival will be a daring theatre experiment: everyone in the room, actors and audience, will have the chance to get involved. Ready to play? Each performance will be different depending on which version of the show we will be doing. All the more reasons to see the show more than once!
From Toronto, take the Shaw Express Bus. Only $25 return with your Shaw ticket.
