The Venetian Twins
“What the hell’s going on?”
After writing The Servant of Two Masters (recently a West End hit in a new version as One Man, Two Guvnors) Goldoni followed up with this timeless comedy of mistaken identity.
Estranged twins, Zanetto and Tonino are unlike each other in every way… except that they look exactly the same. When they both arrive in the same town on the same day each seeking a bride-to-be, romantic entanglements soon become hopelessly confused.
Before lunchtime, insults, threats, marriage proposals and boxes of jewels have all ended up in the wrong hands… sorting it all out in time for the weddings is going to be murder!
Lyceum associate artist Tony Cownie’s new version of this riotous farce brings a delightfully Scottish flavour to a dizzying, and inventive romantic comedy.
