Description "Comedy at its broadest and liveliest, Bell Shakespeare presents Carlo Goldoni's masterpiece The Servant Of Two Masters - the crowning glory of Commedia del'Arte tradition that so influenced Shakespeare's comedies and Western theatrics. Truffaldino couldn't be happier with his change of circumstance balancing two jobs and earning double the wage. But his 'masters' turn out to be separated lovers on the run staying at the same inn. This comedy of 18th Century love gone wrong and mistaken identity in Venice is an exhilarating experience for all audiences".
