Scripts 1 to 3 of 3

Androcles et Leo by Nicholas Richards
RolesMinimum Male roles = 3. Minimum Female roles = 3. Minimum total with doubling = 14. Minimum total without doubling = 23. Chorus. Most of the characters are written male (even the lion), for reasons of historical verisimilitude. Don't let that put you off.
Run TimeAround 25 minutes. [Estimated!]
MusicNone.
StyleShort drama (played for comedy) in which the protagonists speak Latin and the narrators, where necessary, translate.
SynopsisThe optimistic story of the slip-away slave meeting the limping lion - with a side-order of the private life of Emperor Claudius.

Sic Notus Ulixes? by Nicholas Richards
RolesMinimum Male roles = 5. Minimum Female roles = 1. Minimum total with doubling = 7. Minimum total without doubling = 7. No chorus. Whilst all bar Circe are written male, the author would be happy with any liberties taken with gender - and, in any case, what evidence do we have that Homer was male?
Run TimeAround 15 minutes. [Estimated!]
MusicNone.
StyleHumorous Homeric epic in a fifteen minute play aimed at beginners' classes in Latin!
SynopsisThree scenes from the story of Ulysses' homecoming translated from the original Greek (*) and thoroughly mangled and distorted for dramatic presentation. Narrated by the original poet himself.
* Whilst the above summary notes the translation from Greek, it does not note what it is translated into. In this case, it's Latin (which itself is translated - or at least clarified - into English by the narrator).

Tumultus by Nicholas Richards
RolesMinimum Male roles = 10. Minimum Female roles = 3. Minimum total with doubling = 18. Minimum total without doubling = 27. Chorus. Most of the named characters are written male (for reasons of historical verisimilitude), but some could be played female. The two groups of supporters could accommodate a large number of extras, up to the capacity of your amphitheatre.
Run TimeAround 15 minutes. [Estimated!]
MusicNone.
StyleShort drama (played for comedy) in which the protagonists speak Latin and the narrators, where necessary, translate. This is based on a real event, reported by the military historian Tacitus.
SynopsisIn 59 AD, a disgraced Roman Senator, Livineius Regulus, put on a spectacular gladiatorial contest in Pompeii. An incident at the contest sparked a riot (the Tumultus of the title) between Pompeians and rival supporters from Nuceria. This play takes us through the events.
(The run time may be extended, depending on the time spent in gladiatorial contests and riot.)
