By Carlo Goldoni, directed by Iacopo Farusi & Leticia Texidor
Mirandolina is an innkeeper. All the patrons fall in love with her, but she’ll have none of it. One day, a new guest arrives, a misogynist who proclaims his distaste for women and swears he’ll never fall in love. Mirandolina resolves to prove him wrong, and she will succeed too much for everyone’s good. If you thought eighteenth-century theatre could not be feminist, well, you’re probably right, but this is as good as it gets.
Wit, revenge, class struggle and a dash of slapstick. Move over, ‘One Man, Two Guvnors’: Goldoni is back in town!
