Miles Gloriosus 2014: still smiling at the end of the tour!

Every other year, St. Olaf Classics students perform one of Plautus’ ancient Roman comedies in a mixture of English and Latin.

Each performance runs 50-60 minutes with no intermission. The troupe takes the show on the road to other schools in the area.

Coming up in the spring of 2016: ¬†Plautus’ Curculio (Wed.-Thur., March 9-10, on tour; Fri.-Sat., March 11-12, at St. Olaf College)

For more on the plays, see this article in Didaskalia. DVD’s are available for purchase from the director, Prof. Anne Groton.
