Description

A modern comedy in an ancient setting, Plebs charts the antics of three under-achievers, all of whom are on a desperate quest to live the ‘when in Rome’ mantra to the full in the empire’s most exciting city. Since Series One the world has indeed progressed (from 27BC to 26BC) but flat-mates Marcus (Tom Rosenthal), Stylax (Joel Fry) and slave Grumio (Ryan Sampson) have made no strides whatsoever. Not domestically, not financially and certainly not romantically.
