Hazards of Love 1 copy.jpg

Lost Pudding, The Travelling Masks and FRINGE HQ present the Australian leg of a worldwide Commedia dell'Arte collaboration.

In a ghost town called Ghost Town, local lovers Isabella and Flavio are itching to be stitched together in eternal matrimonial bliss. Perfect, if not for their imbecile Fathers: Mayor Dottore and Old Man Pantalone. Together, they tear our poor young lovers apart, and pretty much ruin everything. 35 people from over 10 countries, keen to experience a classic Italian theatre form in its most pure, took an in-depth study of Commedia dell'Arte in Italy 2017. Using laughter to push through language and culture barriers, this motley troupe decided to form The Travelling Masks project. An international collaboration with one universal goal: make the world laugh.
