Easter Week 7 to May Week
Cambridge Footlights alumnus, Alex Horne will be tackling one of light entertainment’s final taboos: the language of Latin! With his new interactive comedy show 'When in Rome: A Latin Adventure', Horne will build upon the success of his previous two innovative and semi-educational Edinburgh shows, 'Making Fish Laugh', which gained a Perrier nomination, and 'Everybody Talks', which earned him a Chortle Award. This year, Horne promises to teach his audience Latin in under an hour. If it comes down to a choice between an ablative absolute and a pun, you’ll probably get both.
The show is being previewed for a run at the Pleasance during this year's Edinburgh Festival, and is one of four productions being previewed by recent Footlights alumni in May Week.
"The most inventive show I have seen this year" - The Observer
"A winning blend of intellect and persistent playfulness" - The Times
