Love in Naples
Written & Directed by Rick Ponzio
April 9-12, 7:30 PM, University Theatre
This slapstick comedy is set in Renaissance Naples. Leandro was thought to have drowned. His fiancée, Beatrice is being forced to marry Leandro’s father, Pantalone by her mother, Dottore to provide an heir for the two families. Disguised as a young boy, Beatrice runs away only to be challenged on a street by the unrecognizable Leandro, who swam from the shipwreck for a year. Defeating Leandro, Beatrice recognizes him as he pines for her aloud. With the help of their servants Truffaldina and Francischino, the young lovers plot to trick their parents Pantalone and Dottore into admitting their past love for each other and tying the knot.
