World Premiere

by Plautus, adapted and directed by Evren Odcikin

from a translation by Deena Berg

Custom Made Theatre Company, San Francisco CA (2015)

If you’ve seen Sondheim’s A Funny Thing on the Way to the Forum, you already know that Plautus was a major influence for every possible style of comedy through the ages. Evren Odcikin’s fast and furious mash-up of Plautus proves that Roman comedies never get old, they just get funnier! 


Theatre Bay Area Awards Recommended Production

Director and scenic designer

"Odcikin displays a rare expertise in making the tried and true look new. Under his able hand, the cast members appear to be having the time of their lives." 


"Odcikin has brought the best of Comedia Dell’Arte and the modern sitcom... Great comic timing and shenanigans." 

—VMedia Arts

"Wunderkind Odcikin has pulled out all the stops... The Braggart Soldier is a big, brassy and rowdy production."
