You, Nero



You, Nero

Subversive Comedy
You, Nero
by resident playwright Amy Freed
NOV 25, 2011 – JAN 1, 2012 in the Fichandler

As Rome collapses beneath Nero’s outrageous narcissism, a forgotten playwright tries to restore order through the art of theater in this “gloriously funny” (New York Times) farce. Amid the chaos of crime, lust and politics, convincing the world’s most famous debaucher to choose virtue over vice proves to be a Herculean task. Pulitzer Prize finalist Amy Freed’s wild romp questions whether well-crafted drama and intellect are any match for decadence and good old-fashioned bloodshed.

You, Nero is recommended for ages 18 and older.
