Presented by Lung Ha Theatre Company
Two very fast paced, very funny and perhaps even political Commedia Dell’Arte “canovaccios” stories.
Il Panico di Pantalone
It is the night before Pantalone’s wedding… Finally dreams seem to be coming true for Pantalone. His servants, Arlecchino and Pulcinella, have set things up for their sleazy old master – he will inherit the largest of wills, marry the most beautiful woman and own the largest estate in the region. But could redemption finally be coming the way of Pantalone?
Il Panico di Capitano
Il Capitano has requisitioned his navy, positioned his air force and grounded his troops. Brighadella is in the bunker. Pulcinella is in the lookout. Il Dottore is full of advice, as always. The enemy is the firing line. War is imminent. Before the battle Capitano has one more story to tell of his past “heroism”, but this time could his “braggadocio” blow up in his face placing the lives of himself and his army in danger?
