For our performance this semester, I think we should totally do Plattus' Amphritruo. Struggling with the pronunciation of the play name, I jokingly referred to it as "Ampi-Frito." I propose we name our production this and adapt the play around this title. Ampi-Frito is the boss of a Frito chip business. Sosia is a lowly worker. Zeus and Hermes could be conniving CEOs from upper management. Or they could be gods in a contemporary setting, whatever. Ampi-Frito would where a suit and tie, looking like a boss. Sosia would be in sanitary factory garb, complete with hairnet. Or maybe his outfit could look more drive-thruish, with a colorful outfit with a visor. I think Amphituro is definitely our best bet for a good performance.
