Tickets are now on sale for the Upper School’s fall production depicting Carlo Goldoni’s 18th century commedia dell’arte, The Servant of Two
Masters, translated and adapted by Bonnie J. Monte.
This modern adaptation of Goldoni’s classic comedy is set in Venice, Italy, where Clarice’s (Katherine Coscia ’15
) dream of marrying her true love, Silvio (William Conlan ’16
), is shattered when the man she was originally promised to—Frederigo Rasponi—seemingly returns from the dead. Unknown to anyone, save the local innkeeper Brighella (Katherine Giordano ’14
), Frederigo is actually his sister Beatrice (Erin Wetzel ’15
) in disguise. Beatrice is determined to settle her brother’s debts and to find her own love, Florindo (Paul Dunham ’15
), who fled from Turin when Frederigo was killed. Beatrice’s plans work perfectly at first, until her sneaky servant Truffaldino (Mycroft Zimmerman ’16
) also takes Florindo on as his master in order to make some extra money. Add to this two overbearing fathers and a love-smitten maid, and the stage is set for a classic slap-stick comedy of mistaken identities, complicated plot twists and the triumph of love.
Directed by Performing Arts Chair Paul H. Canada, The Servant of Two Masters will open Thursday, October 31 at 7:30 p.m. Additional performance dates and times will include:
Friday, November 1 at 7:30 p.m.
Saturday, November 2 at 7:30 p.m.
