A Servant of Two Masters
by Carlo Goldoni
Directed by Joel Williams

Valborg Theatre
November 19-23, 7pm
Adults $10
Students/Children $6

The action of The Servant of Two Masters, one of the world's great comedies, centers on how an out-of-work servant, Truffaldino, tries to make his way in life by hiring himself simultaneously to two employers, keeping each ignorant of his other job. He unknowingly thrusts himself into a world of disguises, broken marriage contracts, duels and incorrectly delivered letters. The struggle of this upwardly mobile innocent to keep afloat creates a 'man-versus-society' comment as hilariously valid today as it was in 1745.
