SynopsisWhen Tiberius Pompus arrives from Rome to take up a governorship in the wilderness that is Eastern Britain he is looking for peace and a quiet life. He has every faith in his long-suffering personal assistant, Flavia, and his military commander, Ludicrous. Unfortunately restless locals in the form of the Iceni tribe and in particular the ambitiously troublesome Boudicca prove a thorn in his side. What Tiberius needs least is a visit from newly-appointed Emperor and old school friend, Marcus Antonius, accompanied by the Emperor's girlfriend, the ultra-glamorous and even more ultra-temperamental Queen Cleopatra of Egypt. It is imperative that the Emperor's stay goes perfectly. It doesn't.

When the contractors return, (with donuts to share), the actors make their sad goodbyes and exit.
