Author(s): Carlo Goldoni
This is a Christmas pantomime with an Italian accent from the Royal Shakespeare Company and the Young Vic Company. "Two wages. Two men's meals. Am I mad? Not half." Carlo Goldoni's 18th century comedy about a wily servant who gets the best of his masters by hook and crook, is one of the great classic commedia dell'arte scripts of world drama. In this new, rapid fire adaptation by award winning dramatist Lee Hall, the language has been updated to now in order to give the action the fast-paced feeling of a Christmas pantomime. A cracker of a version certain to please all and fill the theatres.
