Edinburgh 2020 The Triumphal Procession of Bacchus
Maerten Van Heemskerck

"Things will change. Things always change. Two thousand years from now people will look back on us and maybe they'll be appalled by what we said and did - or maybe they'll laugh or maybe they'll just wonder at the complexity of human relationships."

The story of three young men in ancient Rome. With narrator Gaius Petronius as their guide, Encolpius, Ascyltos and Giton find themselves at the heart of adventures of seduction, deception, love, thievery, violence and more, accompanied by a cantankerous group of Actors who are roped in to take on various roles as needed.

A comedy of words and action. A spectacle that is funny, thought-provoking, uncomfortable, tragic, satiric and satyric. A view of sexual relations from the Roman perspective - and the Roman perspective viewed from today. A reminder that actors have a life beyond the stage. All this and more in The Satyricon.

Premiering in Edinburgh, June 2020. More information on the dedicated website: thesatyricon.uk.
