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.
"Successfully meshes moods of glorious silliness with deep poignancy."
"This play has it all: dire issues, belly laughs, real characters and that over-the-top edge that makes it a fun night in live theatre!"
"A finely tuned production. The scenes between Gamboa and Gillum are pure magic!"
"Stimulating discussion about the many textures of love."
"An extremely intelligent work with a cast to match!"
"A wonderful theatrical experience!
