Lovers. Poets. Zannis. Dukes. Madmen. Enter the world of Isabella Andreini, greatest actress of the commedia dell’Arte. Finding herself performing alone on a stage, Isabella is challenged to improvise a new scenario – the story of her life. Isabella uses her unparalleled craft to tell her story and delve into the madness that fuels her art. Using masks, puppets and sheer imagination, award-winning actress Wendy Gough brings to life some 20+ characters in a show that flies by at a breakneck pace.
