About this show

Lust, Lies and Marriage is a world premiere directed by the internationally acclaimed master of Italian comedy, Antonio Fava. In the play, Dottore tells his daughter she'll be marrying Lelio when all she wants to do is marry the handsome Orazio. A foreign woman named Celia falls in love with the same Orazio while another gentlemen named Odoardo falls in love with her. What's a servant or two to do but dress up in disguise and help love-struck masters figure the whole mess out! Add an enchanted well, a wily thief, a voluptuous inn-keeper and greedy fathers and you've got a classic set-up for an Italian farce Commedia dell'Arte style!
