A French classic
gets its groove back!

Changes of Heart


By Marivaux, Translated by Stephen Wadsworth

Directed by Timothy Douglas

Featuring Artistic Associates Shawn Douglass and Linda Gillum with Alana Arenas, Nicolas Gamboa and Steve Wojtas

Presented November 23, 2011 - January 8, 2012


In Marivaux's delightfully contemporary story, Silvia is smitten with her neighborhood sweetheart, Harlequin. But the love-sick Prince steals her away and tries to win her over with his life of luxury. Will their cultures clash or will love dance across class lines?  Our production of this pre-French Revolution comedy is re-set in the 1960s, revealing the timeless allure of sexy strangers.
