The Love Of Three Oranges

A production by Theatre Group

Written by Hillary DePiano

Fresher's Play Based on a scenario by Carlo Gozzi and inspired by his original project, Hillary DePiano’s version of The Love of Three Oranges is a wild raucous slapstick comedy in three acts completely reworked, revised, retooled and redone for today’s audiences

Prince Tartaglia’s life is filled with misery until an evil witch and her equally evil henchmen concoct a plan to kill him by sending him on a quest for three giant oranges. This quest, however, soon proves more fruitful than he could have imagined. Throw in more witches, wizards, princesses, an effeminate unionized devil, a few ferocious inanimate objects, melodramatic monarchs and a wild narrator who isn’t sure how far removed from the story he is and what you have in the end is a flurry of comedy, parody, and quality that entertains and educates on many levels.
