Described as a physical theatre feast, “The Servant of Two Masters” promises to answer questions like: Is Federigo really dead? Will Clarice and Federigo, who may be dead, tie the knot? Does the Doctor really know Latin? Does Beatrice enjoy cross-dressing? Has Silvio ever really used his sword? Does Pantalone have an honorable bone in his body? Is Florindo a wanted man? Could Smeraldina be a feminist? and Will Truffaldino betray Pasquale in his search for love, a full stomach and double overtime?

Jax Pratt as Truffaldino
Lily Mayfield as Smeraldina
Adare Smith as Brighella
Morgan Goldsberry as Pantalone
Claire Shea as Clarice
Jamie Riedy as Silvio
