THE SERVANT OF TWO MASTERS

by Carlo Goldoni, adapted and directed by Murray Ross

At THEATREWORKS you aren't just watching wonderful theatre, you are immersed in it.

You are right there! This season you'll meet extraordinary lovers, liars and lunatics down in a mine, up on a hill, riding the waves, grilling in a backyard, and courting lovely women in France. We'll lead you through sunny days and wild nights during all four seasons. This is the stuff dreams are made on; the stuff of life itself.

This is THEATREWORKS making great theatre with professional artists and sharing it with the best of company in intimate and welcoming spaces. Please join us!

THE SERVANT OF TWO MASTERS

It’s a tough gig satisfying even one demanding boss, let alone two— especially when neither master knows you’re doing double duty. On a perpetually empty stomach, Truffaldino pulls off the impossible in a sidesplitting classic.

 

Carlo Goldoni's The Servant of Two Masters (1745) was set in Venice, Italy. This new adaption is also set in Venice—Venice Beach that is, c. 1955.  Murray says, “We’re trading the gondolas and masks for beatniks, bongos and bikinis. This is great comedy, driven by two strong eternal forces in our lives: food and love. Those forces were fully in play when I was growing up in Southern California, and I think we can have a lot of fun with them on muscle beach... It’s really commedia dell’arte meets doo-wop. It’s pure happiness.
