Lower Merion High School's drama group, Players, was hard at work on Thursday, conducting the first off-book run-through of its spring comedy, "Servant of Two Masters." The 1743 play will be somewhat contemporized and localized by the theater group, Players dramaturge and LMHS senior Elsa Schieffelin said.
"It's a comedy written in 1743, but it's with a rather modern translation," student director LMHS senior Robert Gaudio explained. "It's in the style of comeddia dell'arte, and it's heavily improv-based—which is kind of ironic because it's scripted."
Gaudio said that Players has worked a lot of local references into the play as well.
"It's going to be a really fun production."
The play will run Thursday, April 26 to Saturday, April 28 at Lower Merion High School.
