Italian Theatre Workshop Play


Location: Washington Hall Lab Theatre

A group of students of Italian have worked together over the Spring Semester to present a fully staged production of two short Italian plays on the theme of marriage. L’osteria della posta (1762) by Carlo Goldoni is a stylish comedy satirizing eighteenth-century aristocratic attitudes to matrimony; while Luigi Pirandello’s Bellavita (1928) is a dark examination of life, love, and adultery in a small southern Italian town.

The plays will be presented in Italian, accompanied by a detailed synopsis in English.
