Robert, an ageing businessman, believes he can make your dreams become flesh. Part mentor, part historian, part psychopath, he strides about his storeroom like a lowrent Caesar, filling his young apprentice, Joe, with tales of Sixties glamour and ancient historical conquests. As they await the arrival of Mary, Robert tries to teach Joe everything he knows...but he's not telling him quite everything he knows. Now Mary wants proof. And she wants to fill Joe in on a few details. "Tabloid Caligula" was produced at the Arcola Theatre in London in 2004 and opens in May 2005 in the 'Brits off Broadway' season at New York's Theater E59.
