Constantine, a hedonic Emperor with a penchant for pepper, hosts a lunatic, award-winning journey through history, togas, house music and horse massage. Byzantium, City of Man, becomes Constantinople, City of God. Luxurious, majestic, eccentric and utterly absurd.

Theatre Beating have created a story of childlike adventure, delight, history, night clubs, neck ties and aqueducts. Like a great pop song, it thrives on the tension between being completely brilliant and also very, very stupid.

With its premiere at the Auckland Fringe in 2011, followed by a sell out season in Edinburgh, Constantinople goes where few historical fantasy comedies from New Zealand have dared to go before. Adelaide… and maybe Melbourne, later.

“Genuinely exciting and new.” **** - The Scotsman, UK
“Wisely silly, ridiculously funny and unexpectedly educational.” - The List, Edinburgh
Winner of the STAMP Award at Auckland Fringe, 2011

Part of the NZ International Comedy Festival at BATS Theatre
