A motley band of traveling commedia players in Renaissance Italy arrives in Naples just in time for he Feast of San Gennaro. The passions of the actors and the locals are ignited when lustful lovers romp through the town piazza seeking pleasure and discovering the many forms of love in this outrageously smart and bawdy comedy.”
