Truffaldino in trouble, or the right way to serve dishes and information

 

Venetian merchant Pantalone de Bisognosi has a daughter whom he has just affianced with the son of Doctor Lombardi. The world of the young couple collapses when it comes out that the girl’s previous fiancé, a rich man, is not dead as everybody believed. Having arrived to Venice with his servant Truffaldino he intends to get married. However, his identity is dubious because he seems to show more interest in how to gain money and time than in his future spouse. Moreover, he keeps forgetting that even servants must be given something to eat. Feeling desperately hungry, Truffaldino accepts to serve a second master – a secretive person with a fierce temper – who promised him lunch. This event sets off an avalanche of misunderstandings, quarrels and unforeseen plots, bringing about still more shocking disclosures. The most renowned comedy by Carl Goldoni (1707–1793) is based on the jocular contrasts among human desires – while some invest all their energy in marrying the one they love, others would bend over backwards to eat their fill. And as they refuse to make any concessions, they complicate their own lives as well as those of others. The legendary drama The Servant of Two Masters, which has been entertaining audiences around the globe since 1745, will be produced by the Mahen Theatre under Martin Glaser’s direction.
