Full Length Play


Quino, a gifted youth in 15th-century Italy, aspires to join a band of professional actors. Recognizing his comic talent, he's encouraged by all the villagers, especially his warm-hearted mama and his friend Luigi. A band of strolling players enters and Pantalone, one of its members, announces they could use another actor. Quino's prayers seem answered—until he has his first case of stage fright. But the actors sense this shy boy's possibilities and they suggest another audition. Unfortunately Daniello, the mayor's son, has decided he'd like to be a star "because I'm so good looking!" Why not hold a contest and let the actors decide? But who appoints himself the sole judge? The mayor! How Quino evolves from an earnest amateur into the legendary Harlequin, a key member of the commedia dell'arte, is wonderful theatre. Based on actual commedia history, Mr. Glennon's lively script offers comedy and charm and the chance to explore imaginative acting styles.
