Publisher's Summary

Multi-award-winning David Benson leads an all-star cast in a sparkling new audio recording of the Frankie Howerd comedy classic Up Pompeii.

Welcome to ancient Rome, where the steps of the Forum are peopled by nubile slave girls and a range of outrageous characters including Lurcio’s owner, Ludicrus Sextus the senator, his wife, Ammonia, his son, Nausius, and his daughter, Erotica. Lurcio attempts to deliver his prologue and begin proceedings before he’s quickly caught up in the myriad of sexual liaisons in all quarters of his master’s house. Why does Ludicrus not leave for the Senate meeting in Rome? Why does his wife return so quickly from the country? Who will take care of the escaped slave girl, Voluptua, and will Nausius’ love poetry improve? Whilst growing chaos ensues, an increasing rumbling is heard in the distance - what could that possibly be?
