Four Roman Comedies : The Haunted House, Casina, or a Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Wedding, the Eunuch, Brothers. by Terence, J. Michael Walton, Plautus.

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum is a 1966 British-American DeLuxe Color musical comedy film, based on the stage musical of the same name. It was inspired by the farces of the ancient Roman playwright Plautus (251–183 BC) – specifically Pseudolus, Miles Gloriosus and Mostellaria – and tells the bawdy story of a slave named Pseudolus and his attempts to win his freedom by helping his young master woo the girl next door.

It was inspired by the farces of the ancient Roman playwright Plautus (251-183 . – specifically Pseudolus, Miles Gloriosus and Mostellaria – and tells the bawdy story of a slave named Pseudolus and his attempts to win his freedom by helping his young master woo the girl next door. The film was directed by Richard Lester, with Zero Mostel and Jack Gilford reprising their stage roles. The musical was adapted for the screen by Melvin Frank and Michael Pertwee from the stage musical A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and a book by Burt Shevelove and Larry Gelbart.

In this hilarious slapstick comedy, Pseudolus is a cunning Roman slave who'll do anything to win his freedom. The plot is way too complex to fully detail here, though we can note that it hinges on the fact that three suburban Roman houses are next door to one another. Flip, glib and sophisticated, yet rump-slappingly bawdy and fast-paced, Forum is a capricious look at the seamy underside of classical Rome through a 20th-century hipster's shades. A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum is a classic in its own right.

Four essential classic plays with an introduction by the editor

The comedies of Plautus and Terence are all that survive to us of a great age of Roman comedy theatre. Collected here are four important plays that offer a unique insight into everyday life in ancient Rome, whilst maintaining a pivotal influence over the theatre of the present day. In The Haunted House the intrigues of a clever slave are played out in a virtuoso comic role; Plautus's Casina is a fast-moving romp through the sexual mores of the Roman upper classes; Terence's more sophisticated The Eunuch, and The Brothers are perhaps closer in sentiment to the attitudes of modern comedy and reflect situations with universal appeal. The volume is edited and introduced by J.Michael Walton, Professor of Drama at the University of Hull.
