THE SERVANT OF TWO MASTERS

by Carlo Goldoni

Translated and adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher and Paolo Emilio Landi 

Directed by Jerry Prell

SYNOPSIS: In the tradition of Commedia dell ‘Arte, this broad and bawdy comedy/farce and modern adaptation, tells the story of a hungry servant who, upon realizing that working for two masters could ensure him a greater supply of food and income, tries to do the job of two men while working desperately to conceal that fact from both employers. A zany plot featuring lost love, mistaken identity, physical humor/slapstick, and a bevy of outrageous Commedia characters.
