A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to The Forum takes place in ancient Rome. Pseudolus, a lying, dishonorable, yet lovable slave, endlessly connives to obtain his freedom, despite the fact that his master, Senex, is tolerant of his sloppy, insubordinate conduct. When Pseudolus learns that young Hero, son of Senex, loves one of the girls from a house of ill repute, he agrees, in exchange for his freedom, to help the innocent Hero win the maiden’s love. This sets the stage for some outrageous situations and hilarious moments in what many have called the funniest farce ever written.
