Physical Comedy that has a Whey with Curds

Tales of Marriage and Mozzarella follows the success of Faction of Fools’ previous "Fool for All" productions in the 2010 and 2011 Capital Fringe Festivals: Tales of Love and Sausages and Tales of Courage and Poultry. Critics have called the "Fool for All" “witty and intelligent,” praised its “awesome feats of physical comedy,” and declared it “thoroughly enjoyable and light-hearted.”

Tales of Marriage and Mozzarella is composed of a sampler platter of 7 rotating scenes filled with cheese and romance, performed by over 40 of DC’s favorite theatre artists. Each scene will be performed 2-5 times, with a different bill of four scenes at each performance. The scenes are created by the ensemble and performed in the Italian Renaissance style of Commedia dell'Arte. Commedia dell’Arte (literally, “theatre of the professional”) is known for its masks, stock characters, physical comedy, and improvisation. Commedia originated in Italy in the early 1500s when performers legally incorporated to form the world’s first theatre “companies” and began to tour their shows throughout Europe. Their work had a lasting influence on artists as diverse as Shakespeare, Molière, the Marx Brothers, the creators of Saturday Night Live, and contemporary sit-coms.
