It is the most infamous of all the ancients - the story of the deposed king whose sons were slaughtered and served to him by his brother in a feast.

The action of the show, much like our lives, takes place in the banalities and ordinarinesses between atrocities.

SENECA (ca. 4 BC 65 AD) was a Roman philosopher, statesman and dramatist of the Silver Age of Latin literature. He was tutor and later advisor to emperor Nero.
