Starring David Benson as Frankie Howerd's Lurcio (Senator Ludicrus Sextus's slave) this hilarious romp through ancient Pompeii brings back all the television favourites in this full-cast audio revival.

Come along and be a part of the audience as Lurcio attempts to deliver his prologue and begin proceedings before he's quickly caught up in the myriad of sexual liaisons in all quarters of his master's house.

Why does Ludicrus not leave for the Senate meeting in Rome?

Why does his wife return so quickly from the country?

Who will take care of the escaped slave girl, Voluptua, and will Nausius's love poetry improve?

Whilst growing chaos ensues, an increasing rumbling is heard in the distance - what could that possibly be?

A bawdy riot from start to finish, with an all-star cast. Have your laughs recorded for posterity.

In fact, you'll laugh your posterity off.

A cautionary tale of coitus and eruptus!
