This play is a stage adaptation based on the translation by P G Walsh of The Satyricon, a Roman novel by Petronius. Although the subject of a film by Fellini, The Satyricon was staged for the first time in history in the Debating Chambers, Glasgow University Union on 30th January 2006. The play highlighted themes of male rape, mental illness and suicide, which were not necessarily evident in the original text.
