Memorial Players Proudly Announces
 
Romulus
 A Play by Gore Vidal
Adapted from a play by Friedrich Durrenmatt
 
Directed by Rina Steinhauer
Romulus is a comedic satire about the fall of the Roman Empire with astute allusions to our contemporary U.S. political environment. Clever, fast-moving dialogue and a story with hilarious twists and tragic turns, Romulus turns a critical eye on the legitimacy of an empire whose noble roots have been corrupted by endless bloodshed and abuse of power. Can money save the day? Or will the barbarians at the gate be the saving grace of civilization?
Romulus
