In this case, the tragedy is set in ancient Rome and the unrest is sparked when grain is withheld from the populace.

The themes of the play may sound familiar. The political drama deals with the hostility that can fester when a society finds itself grappling with a growing divide between the wealthy and the poor.

Those attending the performance are encouraged to bring a blanket or lawn chair.
