The Other-siders

The Other-siders

A Commedia dell’arte comedy in rhymes for children.

In the city of “Redville,” everything is red, and there’s no room for any other color. So, what will the mayor, Baron Redamemnon, do with all the spots appearing on his body? What will his daughter, Redmonella, do when she falls in love with Bluelue from “Blunea” – the reds’ rival city? Will the residents of Redville truly get to know the “other-siders”? A children’s play in rhymes in the style of Commedia dell’arte, the Italian mask theater, incorporating physical humor, playful buffoonery segments, pantomime, and music, reinforcing the saying “Don’t judge a a book by its cover – or a city by its color.”
