The 2018-19 ACC drama season ends on a delightfully high note this weekend with ?The Servant of Two Masters,? a tale of mixed identities, witty and rapid-fire dialogue and enough twists and turns to make a pretzel-maker blush.
Penned nearly 300 years ago by Italian playwright Carlo Goldoni, and translated for contemporary audiences by Jeffrey Hatcher and Paolo Emilio Landi, ?The Servant? tells the story of a young couple, Clarice and Silvio, whose pending nuptials are thrown awry with the arrival of Beatrice, a woman disguised as her late brother. Beatrice is pretending to be the very dead Federigo, who had originally been promised Clarice?s hand in marriage.
And if Beatrice can keep up the ruse long enough, she will collect a tidy sum from Clarice?s dowry.
