The Venetian Twins

Performance Workshop's Commedia dell'Arte



A pair of Venetian twins, Zanetto and Tonino, unknowingly arrive separately in Verona on the same day in search of their respective romantic interests. The twins, identical only in appearance, have greatly differing personalities and intellect and are mistaken for each other in a plot that escalates in complexity with each passing moment. In preparation for their roles, the actors took classes on professional stunts, swordsmanship, acrobatics, somersault and dance.
