A LETTER TO FRIENDS

It's good to be back at Wake Forest, teaching and directing the play you are going to see tonight.

The Servant of Two Masters is one of the great classical comedies of Theatre. First performed in Italy in 1746, it has been continuously in the repertoire of major Theatre Companies throughout the world.

Even though the characters are based on those of the Commedia dell'arte, it is not true Commedia, for Carlo Goldoni has provided a full text for the play, as opposed to the short scenarios around which the Commedia actors improvised their performances.

There's an old theatrical saying, "An audience gets the performance it deserves", so you, each of you, has to participate tonight. I ask you to give us your smiles, laughter, good spirits, and your encouragement to our young actors who are ready to give their best to you this evening.

And now, may I thank all the people who have worked so magnificently as a team to make this production possible: the actors, designers, costumiers, technicians, carpenters and craftspeople, stage staff, publicity, front of house and box office personnel, and to everyone in the Wake Forest Theatre Department.

Finally, my thanks to you for welcoming me back "home" again from England's fair (but damp) shores.

We're glad you're here. Enjoy the show!

Jim Dodding
