After the release of the movie A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum,
there was a revival of interest in Ancient Roman Comedies for a while. This was my
preliminary, poster design for a proposed, college-theater production of a play by Plautus.

This bold, colorful design has a playful exuberance, suitable to the play which it
would have promoted, but it is not a work of subtlety or depth, and the influence of
Picasso is a bit too obvious. Even so, perhaps the poster still has a brightly decorative
appeal for those who have an interest in theater and stage arts, or for poster-art
enthusiasts in general.
