The Bursledon Players Present:


Vice Versa

by Phil Porter

A Roman farce containing mild adult humour

14th, 15th and 16th November 2019, 7.30 p.m
at the Village Hall, Long Lane, Bursledon


By the gods, look what the goat dragged in by the knackers! Never did I see such a pitiful aggregation of sweat-soaked, grovelling jobbards!

General Braggadocio is a pompous and lecherous bully who makes life miserable for all around him. His enslaved concubine and a quick-thinking servant join forces in a bid to escape his household and teach him a lesson he will never forget. With the help of a randy old magistrate, a mischievous pet monkey and an imaginary visitor from Greece, they play upon the General’s many vices and vanities as they attempt to regain their freedom and return home.

Loosely based on Miles Glorious by Plautus, Vice Versa is a madcap, farcical, feel-good comedy from multi-award-winning playwright Phil Porter, produced for the Royal Shakespeare Company, Stratford in 2017 for their “Rome” season.

A cash bar will be available. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. We look forward to seeing you.
