SCIT presents Plautus' Casina: 'A funny thing happened on the way to Nob Hill'

Please join Stanford Classics in Theater for Casina as we combine the wit and wordplay of Plautus’ Roman comedy with the glitz and glamour of Gilded Age San Francisco:
Cleveland Stafford is a man who has everything: A grand house in Nob Hill, millions of dollars, shares in several major railroad companies and a beautiful farm down on the Peninsula. His only problem? Finding a way to out-fox his wife Gloria and life the good life with beautiful young Marguerite.
Cleveland and Gloria’s machinations draw in their neighbors and servants leading to an uproarious farce of plots and counter-plots involving haughty butlers, burly farmhands and a troupe of vaudeville performers. Featuring SCIT’s classic blend of music, dance and dirty jokes, Casina will be a Roman comedy as you’ve never seen it before!
Please note, due to strong language and adult content, unaccompanied minors will not be admitted.
