‘There are so many servants looking for a master and I have found two! Yay. What the hell do I do now? I can’t serve both, can I?’

Hungry servant Truffaldino bites off more than he can chew when he agrees to serve two masters at the same time! Now he must hold everything together without exposing his scam and woo his love interest, spicy Smeraldina, all at the same time. Meanwhile, Beatrice and Florindo pine for each other, desperately seeking one another in Venice.

On the flipside, young lovers Silvio and Clarice seesaw from swearing undying love to pledging eternal hatred.

A calamitous comedy unfolds as Truffaldino skids and schemes his way through multiple beatings, mistaken identity and love gone awry on the streets of decadent 18th-century Venice.

This new translation and adaptation of Carlo Goldoni’s classic by Rosa Campagnaro and Make A Scene maintains the traditional improvised spirit and grotesque masks of Commedia dell’Arte in a contemporary reimagining.
