Tug of War

Roman comedy takes the stage at the Getty Villa in Malibu beginning September 6, 2007. Tug of War, the second annual outdoor theater production in the Barbara and Lawrence Fleischman Theater, is a modern twist on a Roman classic. Award-winning director Meryl Friedman brings bawdiness and antic behavior to this play she adapted from an original translation by Amy Richlin, from the Roman comedy Rudens, by Plautus.

A comedy with music where everyone wants what they can't have, Tug of War will be presented on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, September 6-29, 2007.
