By Patrick Barlow
Playing in the Long Beach Playhouse’s Mainstage Theater
Feb. 24 – Mar. 23, 2023
Directed by Gregory Cohen

From the playwright who brought us the hilarious The 39 Steps, comes BEN HUR, the epic tale based on one of the best-selling books of the nineteenth century, now told with only four actors! The story follows an amateur theatre troupe as they attempt to produce the massive tale of the fictional Jewish prince, Judah Ben-Hur, complete with chariot race, sea battle, stage combat, and actors struggling with professional rivalries and offstage romances.  In a comedy event bound to be packed with intentional and unintentional laughs, can this plucky band of thespians retell one of the largest stories ever told?
