Servant of two masters, a fun comedic play dating from the 1700s, is a tale of love, secret identities, intrigue and an honest-ish bloke trying to earn a crust of bread. The work written by Carlo Goldoni belongs to the Commedia dell’arte genre, an era of high comedy, intrigue and twisty plots.
Performed by On the Hill Theatres Youth Ensemble, comprising of students from On the Hill Drama Club, performing their inaugural production as a troupe. the play is sure to be a jampacked adventure of love, near-death-experiences and intrigue.
The story is set in Venice and centres around Tuffaldino a mostly well meaning, not completely honest or bright, somewhat underfed servant on the lookout for a way to make a little extra cash on the side. Tuffaldino becomes embroiled in a web of his own making as he works double time as a servant for two different masters. The plot thickens as he endeavours to keep the knowledge of each master a secret from the other with some hilarious results. Also come to Venice is the mysterious Frederigo Rasponi, under the pretence of getting engaged, but covertly in the process of conducting a man hunt. Frederigo Rasponi arrival throughs a spanner in the works for Signora Clarice and her love Silvio creating no end of turmoil.
