Written by Carlo Goldoni
Adapted by Lee Hall
Directed by Ross Jolly
New Zealand Premiere
Goldoni’s much-loved comic classic is a masterpiece starring a wily servant whose cheeky, inventive trickery gets the best of his masters, in a merry mix-up of mayhem and mistaken identity.
Truffaldino, the scheming and perpetually hungry servant, concocts a zany scheme to double his wages (and his meals) by simultaneously serving two masters – the lovelorn Beatrice (disguised as a man) and her lost lover Florindo.
Hilarity abounds In this sharp, new, rapid-fire adaptation by award winning dramatist Lee Hall (The Pitmen Painters, Billy Elliot).
A delicious, madcap Italian comedy of lovers, disguises, tricks, traps, mishaps and meatballs!
“A sparkling, wonder filled new version by Lee Hall… An evening to cherish” – Daily Mail
“A hugely enjoyable night out” – Covent Garden Life
Ross has directed over 60 productions for Circa, The Court, Centrepoint and Downstage, including award-winning shows such as ART, Waiting for Godot, Copenhagen and Shape of Things.
