The Servant of Two Masters, directed by Maria de Marco, is currently showing at King Street Theatre. The play was written in 1743 by Carlo Goldoni and is set in Venice.



With no knowledge of the play-write or the play, we entered King Street Theatre on opening night with no expectations. The small, simple set and cast take us to a day in Venice and the play proves to be a story of the comedic repercussions of deception and is very reminiscent of a Shakespearean comedy.

The amusing play was easy to follow by a modern audience and even had a few Australian references thrown in. The standout actor in the play for us was Bianca Bonino, who played the role of Pantalone, an older Italian man so well, that it never drew from the story that she was, in fact, a woman! But the majority of the cast did a great job with perfect comedic timing, although we did have some confusion if the differing accents (from a strong Australian accent to inconsistent British ones) they were putting on were for comedic purposes or unintentional.

Overall, The Servant of Two Masters was an enjoyable and amusing night.

The Servant of Two Masters will be showing at King Street Theatre until the 25th of March
