Things turn complex and lovely when the ghost appears in “Delirium’s Daughters.” It’s not a real ghost. Giovio isn’t dead; he has cleverly faked his own demise so that everyone will think kindly of him, especially his girlfriend’s father, who has rejected him as a prospective son-in-law. So he visits the man in the middle of the night.

Commedia dell’arte cleverly meets modern sensibilities in this comedy that delightfully exemplifies its own title—delirium. Nicholas Korn has taken the spectrum of madness in our daily lives and condensed it into a 70 minute romp.

Four marriage proposals among the three daughters of one eccentric widower lead to countless moments of laughter in the return of Nicholas Korn’s Delirium’s Daughters. This play, that made its world premiere in February 2015, successfully uses speedy dialogue and a sparse set (just two benches and the façade of a home) to create an entire world of colorful characters in the town of Aviano, Italy.

Farce, slapstick, and general tomfoolery blend beautifully together in Delirium’s Daughters, playwright Nicholas Korn’s new comic and heartfelt romp that lovingly captures the spirit of commedia dell’arte, staying true to its centuries-old theatrical roots while making it delightedly accessible to modern audiences.
