Two of Goldoni's best comedies, The Venetian Twins (I Due Gemelli Veneziani) and Mirandolina (La Locandiera) are brilliantly brought to life in these acclaimed translations by Ranjit Bolt.

The Venetian Twins

Written in 1743 by the master of Italian comedy, this piece of slapstick foolery hasn't lost an ounce of freshness. Twins separated at birth (played by one actor) turn up in Verona, one for an arranged marriage and the other to meet a girl who has run away from her family for him.


Mirandolina believes open dealing is essential; Valentina wants to have her cake and eat it, and uses intrigue to further her interests. Both are eager to win some kind of equality in a world in which they have no equality, only certain advantages, and almost come to grief.

"Ranjit Bolt has come up with a marvelously robust and colloquial translation." - Daily Telegraph
