Love of Three Oranges

Poster for "SFB". Dates, times, and locations provided below.

The Love of Three Oranges is based on a commedia dell’arte scenario by Carlo Gozzi in the eighteenth century Italy. However, that history is misleading unless you know something about commedia; the actors improvised all lines based on a given plot and their stock characters, making up dialogue that incorporated local references and topical humor along with slapstick, verbal gags and audience interaction. Our adaptation takes Hillary DePiano’s script and localizes it to RIT today, including local and topical references and performing in a local coffee shop created on the Panara stage. We hope you enjoy the sheer silliness of our presentation, but also find the power of communal laughter to distract and heal.
