Directed by Joshua Jon

Caligula, an absurdist play written by Nobel-prize winning French philosopher Albert Camus, imagines the rule of the tyrannical Roman emperor Caligula. Distraught by the death of his sister and rumored lover Drusilla, the previously benevolent ruler Caligula returns from a mysterious three-day disappearance haunted by the idea that “men die and they are not happy”. Armed with cold logic and poisoned by contempt, Caligula’s decrees and public spectacles morph from bizarre to horrific as he attempts to impose his new-found ideology upon the world around him.
