Original plot by
Fools in Progress
in a classic Commedia dell’Arte plot.
Two brothers separated at birth, one grows to become a very rich man in Venice, the other… even richer in a faraway land…. but, before the two get reunited in a quasi happy ending, the town is turned upside down by the mishaps and cataclysms caused by the return of the long lost twin…..
Featuring the most beloved characters from Commedia dell’arte and performed by Fools in Progress Theatre Company, Australia’s premier Commedia troupe trained by Antonio Fava, The Twins Pantalone is sure to have you in stitches and rolling on the floor in laughter.
Join us for a trip back to the very beginnings of modern theatre for a night out you will never forget.
The Twins Pantalone
Review by Suzy Wrong (June 2013)
“This production with its classic plot and archetypal characters is a delightful introduction into the world of Commedia dell’Arte. (…)
The cast of five showcases the silliest of comedies, with the most serious of dedication and skill.
Moments of contemporary references and frequent use of modern language is refreshing, making its humour more immediate and accessible.”
