Horizon Theatre Rep presents the NY premiere of David Greig's highly lauded translation

"A zestful and fresh-sounding new translation!" - Paul Taylor, The Independent (UK)
"A new and lucid translation from David Greig" - (London)

This production of CALIGULA is set in an unspecified country during the 20th century, where the charismatic leader Caligula is given absolute freedom to challenge social convention in pursuit of personal obsession. Following the death of his beloved sister, Emperor Caligula deserts his people and honored position for three days and three nights. He returns with a single objective: to understand the meaning of life.

Scottish playwright David Greig's translation of CALIGULA had its world premiere to great acclaim at London's Donmar Warehouse, followed by subsequent worldwide productions, including noted stagings at the Dublin Theatre Festival and in Washington, D.C., and will have its New York premiere with this production by Horizon Theatre Rep. This past summer, Mr. Greig wrote the translation for Lincoln Center's well-received production of Euripides' THE BACCHAE, starring Alan Cumming.
