Who Loves Commedia dell’Arte?

We are thrilled to be announcing the immediate availability of The Scarlet Heart– our first Commedia dell’Arte play!

This script has been in development for a couple of years now and it’s so amazing to finally have it available to you. We’re debuting it at the 2010 Florida State Thespian Festival and have already sold out of the copies we have down here. Don’t fret – there are plenty more copies.

The most appealing aspect of the script is that the author welcomes you to edit the script and add your own jokes and gags (called lazzi in the Commedia world). And despite the fact that it’s a Commedia piece, it’s very school-friendly. If you think you can get away with it, there’s a whole section at the back telling you how to make the play a bit “naughtier.”
