‘FATAL CHARADE.’ is a term coined by historians. It describes the Ancient Roman practice of carrying out a death sentence by having the condemned perform in a play wherein they, as their character, are killed for real, satisfying the needs of justice and the plot. This dark comedy, set in Ancient Rome, follows a condemned criminal who discovers their great talent for the stage as well as the slap dash theatre troupe that is throwing their heart into the creation of this deadly play. What will we sacrifice for our art? (
