A Servant of Two Masters is a commedia dell'arte comedy by Carlos Goldini and was written in 1746. It does what it says on the can,Venetian chancer doubles income by serving two masters at once. I'd love to be able to say I knew this already, but it's running in Edinburgh and was reviewed in this weeks Guardian. Not sure if it's the same one as Juri is thinking of. Jane
