Featured Events

Servant of Two Masters 

Thursday-Sunday, the Boston College Theatre Department will present Carlo Goldoni's Servant of Two Masters, directed by Carlo Goldoni. 

The setting is 18th century Venice, where Truffaldino, the central figure of the play, is a servant whose first priority is to fill his stomach, which he complains is always empty despite eating everything in sight.  When he is presented with the opportunity to become a servant to a second master, his single-minded quest for food sees this as a chance to receive a second dinner.  Accepting this second position, he spends the rest of the play fumbling to fulfill the needs of both masters, who unbeknownst to him are a pair of star-crossed lovers whose warring families have forbidden their marriage.

*Admission $15, $10 for seniors or with a BC ID. Tickets available online at www.bc.edu/robsham or at 617-552-4002. Robsham Theater Arts Center.
