The play will run from April 22 to 24, starting at 8 p.m., and at 2 p.m. on April 25, in Ingle Auditorium in the Student Alumni Union on the Rochester Institute of Technology campus. Tickets—$2 for the RIT community and $4 for the general public—will be sold at the door.
The Servant of Two Masters follows the young couple, Clarice and Silvio, whose engagement is disrupted by the reappearance of Clarice’s former fiancé thought to be dead. The scheming Federigo, alive and well, demands her hand in marriage. The plot builds with the confusion of undelivered messages and mistaken identities.
Goldoni’s play was inspired by the commedia dell’arte, a type of improvisational theater popular in Renaissance Europe.
The production is sponsored by RIT’s College of Liberal Arts and the RIT Players.
