Stephen Sondheim's first major show as librettist and composer, and our first venture into the brave new soundworld of this modern master of musical theatre. "Forum" tells the tale of Pseudolus, a slave eager to secure his freedom from servitude in the household of Senex and Domina, and their son, Hero. Living on a quiet road in Rome, between a house of ill-repute, run by Marcus Lycus and the abandoned home of Erronius, who is busy searching for his long-lost children, Pseudolus' escapades become increasingly desparate and frenetic. The plot eventually unravels with the arrival of a mighty warrior, Miles Gloriosus, who has designs on one of the courtesans, Philia (as do Hero and Senex!). With well-known songs, such as "Comedy Tonight", "Everybody ought to have a Maid" and "Lovely", the show was a fast-moving challenge!
