The Servant of Two Masters

 

A group of traveling tragedians arrive to perform The Merchant of Venice, only to find that the audience is expecting The Servant of Two Masters.  Parts are quickly assigned and costumes fly as the actors play off audience contributions to create a play about a wise-cracking servant named Truffaldino and how he confuses everyone around him by moonlighting for two employers.
