Octavia Finally Gets Her Debut

MBS Productions presents the world premiere of Octavia, a play banned for centuries by the Roman Empire because of its political content. Set in 90 A.D., the romantic tragedy follows tyrannical Roman Emperor Nero and his wife, Octavia. The play presents multiple challenges Octavia faces, including what it means to love an evil ruler. Will Octavia take over the throne or will Nero overthrow her? To find out, see Octavia, which runs through Saturday. Show times are 8 p.m. Thursday and Friday and 2 p.m. Saturday.
