Show 275: Ashes to Ashes, 23rd June, Devonshire Park Theatre Eastbourne

Two sisters, one good and kind, the other headstrong and wild, live on the slopes of Mount Vesuvius with their father, who must marry them off in order to keep his farm in the wake of an eruption. But Cirius the gladiator has been blinded, so Cassiopeia must marry the poet Demetrius while headstrong Mathilde must pretend to be her sister and marry Cirius, despite her love for Valerian the Gothic Warrior.  In order to stop the wedding, Cirius rides Tarquin the horse up the mountainside, but will he return in time to stop the sham wedding or will he lose his love forever?
