Ken Ludwig’s The Gods of Comedy


May 11, 2019 to Jun 16, 2019
07:00 PM until 10:00 PM

This event occurs weekly, on Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.


Daphne and Ralph are young classics professors who have just made a discovery that’s sure to turn them into academic superstars: an ancient Greek manuscript of incalculable value. But clumsy Daphne has managed to misplace it, and if she doesn’t find it soon, her career hopes will come crashing down. Despairing, she cries out, “Save me, gods of ancient Greece!”…and the gods actually appear! The Ivy League will never be the same as a pair of screwball deities encounters the carnal complexity of college coeds, campus capers, and conspicuous consumption. Comic playwright Ken Ludwig, who delighted Globe audiences with Robin Hood! and Baskerville, returns with a knockabout world premiere. May 11 - June 16, 2019 (Opening night: Thursday, May 16) Donald and Darlene Shiley Stage The Old Globe Theatre Conrad Prebys Theatre Center
