The Cottey College Department of Theatre is pleased to present Servant of Two Masters on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 9 and 10, at 8 p.m. in the Auditorium of the Haidee and Allen Wild Center for the Arts.

Servant of Two Masters was written in 1743 by Venetian playwright Carlo Goldoni and is in the Italian Renaissance style of Commedia dell’arte. It is a comedy about a servant named Tuffaldino working for two masters who are trying to deceive others, while Truffaldino himself is hiding the fact he has two masters. Often other characters hand him notes and money, and simply tell him it is for his master without specifying which one. At one point, Truffaldino tries to serve a banquet to the entourages of both his masters without either group becoming aware of the other.

Tickets for Servant of Two Masters are $5 for adults and $4 for those under age 18 or over age 62. Tickets will be available at the door the evenings of the performance.

The Center for the Arts is on the northeast corner of Austin and Tower streets in Nevada.
