Seneca and the Soul of Nero
by Marcia Eppich-Harris
History remembers Nero as one of the most bombastic and cruel emperors of the ancient world. His tutor and later advisor, Seneca, the stoic philosopher and dramatist, takes drastic measures to reign in the emperor, and in his quest to save Rome, Seneca writes some of his most enduring plays. Focused on the power and failures of the political insider, Seneca and the Soul of Nero looks back to ancient Rome to hold the mirror up to the modern world.
Seneca and the Soul of Nero will play on the Basile Stage at IndyFringe, September 23 to October 2, 2021. Tickets will go on sale in September.
