Ensemble Theatre Company presents The Romans in Britain
Venue: Jericho Arts Centre
Time: 8:00pm
Half-price Tickets: $18.75

"Julius Caesar's Roman invasion of Celtic Britain is contrasted with the Saxon invasion of Romano-Celtic Britain, and finally Britain's involvement in Northern Ireland during the Troubles of the late 20th Century.
Scenes bleed into one another, with Brenton speculating what it may have been like for these cultures to clash; Roman soldiers assaulting young Celts. A Saxon stumbling into a field. An army intelligence officer losing his mind in the Irish fields."
