Servant Of Two Masters

HFCC Makes 18th Century Play Palatable

Richard Marsh Dearborn Press and Guide August 16,1990

Themes and story lines may be timeless, but few actual plays can stand up to the test of time without modifications. In offering an example of the Comedia Dell'Arte genre of theater, Henry Ford Community College made its production of "The Servant of Two Masters" about as palatable for general audiences as possible. "A Servant of Two Masters," written in the 18th century, is a comedy love story with several instances of mistaken and hidden identities thrown in.
