Re: Plautus

The most famous of his plays in Pseudolus, a classic story of a clever and witty servant having to serve less clever people. It is the basis of Stephen Sondheim's A funny thing happened on the way to the forum.

As the plays by Terence have proved popular perhaps we could also try some of Plautus.

These look good, maybe run them after the Terence plays end. Note the translator Henry Thomas Riley is associated with the Terence plays as well.

Thanks, Todd
