Performance
Creators: Morrison, Blake
Abstract or Description:

The play opened at the York Theatre Royal in August 2006, with Barrie Rutter in the title role, and toured until December. Blake's adaptation moves the setting from Venice to the Yorkshire Dales circa 1850, and recasts the characters as a Bradford mill-owner, a Dales farmer, a pompous vicar, a publican and two star-crossed young couples, with the Grand Canal becoming the Leeds-Liverpool canal, and the slippery servant, Truffaldino, who hails from Bergamot, renamed as Arthur Dodge, a man from Muker.
