A riotously, raucous 9th Summer Festival about service, appetites and balancing acts—spanning the full reach of comedy—from Shakespeare's dark satirical masterpiece Measure For Measure to Goldoni's Italian dish of laughs The Servant of Two Masters.

What rules your life? The law? Your conscience? Your instinct? Faith? Should we be ruled by justice or mercy? Should a government legislate your sex life, your morality? How do you responsibly answer the prompts of your deepest, darkest impulses and remain an upstanding moral citizen Shakespeare may as well have written this play yesterday—an Elizabethan Orange Is The New Black meets A Handmaid's Tale—Measure For Measure pushes the genre of comedy to it's darkest and most biting limits. A murky and morally ambiguous exploration of desire and power that will shock audiences with it's contemporary voice, will make you laugh and make you think twice.

Measure For Measure
By William Shakespeare
Directed By Lizzie Schebesta

Adapted from Carlo Goldoni’s mid 18th Century Italian comedy, the Servant of Two Masters is a delicious feast of fun, following the story of an enterprising and perpetually hungry servant who endeavours to work for two masters in order to earn twice the meals!

The Servant of Two Masters is Goldoni’s most popular and loved comedy to this day, and his prolific writing career left a legacy to Italian Theatre. Throughout his life, Goldoni undertook a personal mission to reform the approach to performance in his country. He believed the improvised work of the famous stock-character, masked, Commedia del Arte troupes had become lazy and predictable, and through his scripted dialogue he urged a style of playing that explored the honesty and wit of real life through comedies of characters’ manners and behaviours. With the mask removed, Goldoni aspired to a more accessible and truthful mode of storytelling, with individuality and a sense of realism that reflected contemporary life. This new adaptation of The Servant of Two Masters retains the essence and hilarity of it’s 1700’s source, whilst honouring Goldoni’s own legacy of reform by bringing an immediacy to our contemporary audience.
