StyleComedy play for kids. A solid grounding in ancient history, but it's comedy, so there are plenty of anachronisms.
SynopsisWhen the glamorous Queen Cleopatra takes over the throne of Egypt along with her brother Ptolemy XIII it coincides with the expansion of the Roman Republic (soon to be Empire) in her direction. Cleopatra does not find the advances of a succession of stylish Romans entirely unwelcome, even if her brother has to be disposed of in the process. Unfortunately, Roman politics being what they are, none of her suitors can be viewed as having any long-term prospects.
