December 6, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm| Free
Start your holiday season right with our fourth installment of our free Words Words Words Play Reading of The Servant of Two Masters by Carlo Goldoni. If you had a chance to see our production, Commedia Cannon last December, you may remember a scene from this play. Come see what the rest of the story is about!
Beatrice, a woman who has traveled to Venice disguised as her dead brother in search of the man who killed him, Florindo, who is also her lover. Her brother forbade her to marry Florindo, and died defending his sister’s honor. Beatrice disguises herself as Federigo, (her dead brother), so that he can collect dowry money from Pantalone, the father of Clarice, her brother’s betrothed. She wants to use this money to help her lover escape, and to allow them to finally wed. But thinking that Beatrice’s brother was dead, Clarice has fallen in love with another man, Silvio, and the two have become engaged. Interested in keeping up appearances, Pantalone tries to conceal the existence of each from the other.
