Let’s Do It

A jazz icon and two sisters sing their way through one wild night and one crazy life

based on a true event

Gurmit Singh had two one-act plays staged in the Netherlands as part of the New Holland Writers Festival, Amsterdam, after a period in which he was mentored by leading television and theatre director Wouter van Praag. I love you Daddy was performed in 2002 and a sequel, Thank You, in the 2003 festival. Here is an interview he gave at the time.

Men of Violence…Men of Lust…the GLADIATORS were legendary as the sexual athletes of their age

 78 A.D. Paris, a seventeen-year-old runaway, is loved for his beauty by the wealthy young Egyptian Lucius and by Publius, a member of the Praetorian Guard.  Although he is the son of a free man, Paris is sold to the gladiator school of Pompeii by Lucius’ father, the ambitious merchant Diogenes.  As a sex slave to the hulking warriors of the arena – more beasts than men – Paris is forced to submit to their sadistic lusts.  Only by satisfying them will he gain the chance to train as a gladiator himself and win his freedom.

Having matured into a skilful fighter, Paris is transferred to the Ludus Magnus, the great gladiator school of Rome, where he becomes one of the mightiest champions of the amphitheatre.  But here, in an age of sexual excess unequalled in the history of the world, Paris is drawn into the wild and violent life-style of a leading gladiator and risks losing everything he has fought for, including the man he really loves.
