About this show

From the beloved author of Mambo Italiano comes In Piazza San Domenico, a light-hearted and thoroughly entertaining comedy about love, lust and misunderstandings, inspired by Feydeau, Goldoni and Sophia Loren. It's a burning hot August in Naples, 1952 - "earthquake weather" and the citizens of Piazza San Domenico are all stirred up when Carmelina Benevento suddenly faints upon hearing some bad news about her fiancé, Guido. A series of conspicuous sightings between people provoke gossip. Misinterpretations ensue as the players contrive their own schemes and desperately try to keep face. But love and earth tremors have a way of setting things straight! In Piazza San Domenico received its world-premiere production in the fall of 2009 by the Centaur Theatre Company in Montreal under the direction of Roy Surette.
