By Carlo Goldoni adapted by Lee Hall
Goldoni’s eighteenth-century masterpiece is an enduring story of love, passion and mistaken identity. Complications arise when a servant greedily seeks employment with two masters and spends the rest of the play trying to serve them both while keeping the two unaware of the other's presence. In this new, rapid-fire adaptation by award-winning dramatist Lee Hall, the language has been updated in order to give the action the fast-paced feeling of a Christmas pantomime.
