Stuck between the sacrificial victim and the knife.. Of course everyone likes 'Pseudolus' with the title slaves wild, off the cuff escapes, but I think the real winner in this somewhat random collection is 'Amphitryon'.

Amphitryon is the only comedy by Plautus where the everyday ordinary members of society are directly interacting with the gods, not only that but it's interesting to note the gods themselves are being represented through the text in a way that society back then would seem to regard as completely twisted. In almost all Greek reworked literature mortals can in no way interfere with divine will, but with this play it is presented as something not high and disengaged but quite in your face and often purposely malicious, tricky, and with the example of Zeus quite possibly immoral.
