Doomed to repeat the traditional life of an Italian harlequin, Truffaldino shirks his Commedia Dell’arte upbringing and two-steps across the Atlantic to find a strangely parallel world in the States. The cast of characters may have evolved from old to new world sensibilities, but a host of hilarious problems are one and the same. Truffaldino’s search for himself turns into a poignant and ridiculous romp across two continents. Genres collide when classic commedia and modern sitcom share the stage in a new work by local star Ken Slattery. 

EXTENDED through July 29, 2012!
