The famous Elizabethan playwright, Christopher "Kit" Marlowe has been stabbed. While dying, he is visited by an apparition, the ghost of insane Roman Emperor Caligula ("Little Boots"). Caligula proceeds to walk Marlowe backwards through their respective histories exploring the power of infamy, the struggles of writing and the universal human spirit in this witty and ultimately moving comedy.
Will Bishop, Artistic Director of First Floor Theater, says "When Gus brought me this script, I knew it was a perfect fit for First Floor and our audiences. It combines Roman history, Elizabethan England, non-linear storytelling and metatheatrics to create a play like I have never experienced - blisteringly smart and unapologetically hilarious."
