Comedy of Venice

A hilarious retelling, in commedia dell’arte style, of the true rivalry between Carlo Goldoni (The Servant of Two Masters) and Carlo Gozzi (Turandot) in the 18th Century. Comedy of Venice received an Individual Artist Award from the Maryland State Arts Council. The script is available via email.
