A bit about the play:

King Stag was originally written and produced by Carlo Gozzi in the 18th century and has seen many adaptations and translations since. The play is performed in the style of Commedia dell’arte, a form of Italian street theatre popularized by troupes in the 16th century and beyond. Commedia is known for it’s stylized portrayal of it’s characters and for it’s physical comedy. Some characters (mostly the servants and outsiders) wear masks and others (the lovers) do not. The scenes were performed in the streets and the players would often improvise and interact with the audience. So, the audience gets to be a part of the play as well! The comedy is extremely low brow, and the characters are over the top. So, sit back and enjoy the play, and we promise to deliver a fun bunch of pure nonsense!
