The Haunted House
Hijinx and horror combine in this fresh adaptation of Plautus' The Haunted House. Nominated for several Antonius awards in 190 BCE--including best Middle Republic comedy, and Most Promising Debut by an Umbrian Playwright--The Haunted House has received surprisingly few modern productions, probably owing to the death of Latin. But have no fear: Thomas E. Jenkins' moronic new translation precisely captures the idiocy of the original farce, which scrambles masters and slaves, prostitutes and poltergeists on a particularly hectic day in suburban Rome. So head over to the Overtime Theater to catch this local premiere of Plautus' gloriously goofy Mostellaria:  it's the best little horror house in Texas.

"Ubertim flevi et copiose risi -- iterumque iterumque spectare volo! Hoc spectaculum melius Felibus est! Quattuor stellae!" -- Gaius Junius Marcellus, The Greater Tuscany Examiner

"Tragedy, then, is an imitation (mimesis) of an action that is serious, complete, and of a certain magnitude. The Haunted House, by contrast, is complete garbage." -- Aristotle, Poetics 267E.

Haunted House opens at the Overtime on September 20th, just in time to prepare for Halloween.
