Miles Gloriosus; The Braggart Captain

Book cover
By: (254 BCE-184 BCE)

Pleusicles loves Philocomasium, but she is kidnapped by Pyrgopolinices. Palaestrio, faithful servant to Pleusicles, witnesses this and goes to tell his master, but is captured by Pirates and ends up a servant to Pyrgopolinices as well. Palaestrio still gets word to Pleusicles, who arrives on scene. Palaestrio then invents a complex and daring plan involving mistresses, supposed twin sisters, disguises, family friends in the right places, and a monkey to try to escape Pyrgopolinices and reunite Pleusicles and Philocomasium. - Summary by ToddHW Cast list: Pyrgopolinices, the Braggart Captain: Son of the Exiles Artotrogus, a Parasite: Alan Mapstone Periplecomenus, an old gentleman, the friend of Pleusicles: ToddHW Pleusicles, a young Athenian: Adrian Stephens Palaestrio, servant of Pyrgopolinices: VocalPenguin Sceledrus, another servant of Pyrgopolinices: Mike Manolakes Lucrio, a lad, an under-servant of Pyrgopolinices: WendyKatzHiller Cario, cook to Periplecomenus: Andrew Gaunce A Boy and A Servant: Sandra Schmit Philocomasium, the mistress of Pyrgopolinices: Matea Bracic Acroteleutium, a Courtesan: Sonia Milphidippa, her maid: Jenn Broda Stage Directions: Jim Locke Editing: ToddHW
