by Christopher Fry
Starring Lynn Farleigh as Dynamene, William Gaunt as Tegeus, Julia Sutton as Doto, Bruce Purchase as Virilius

Petronius's tale of the Ephesian widow who decided to die upon her husband's tomb in the company of a faithful waiting-maid is given a witty and thought-provoking treatment in Christopher Fry's verse drama.

This production by the Stockton and District YMCA at their Dovecot Arts Centre has received international critical acclaim.
