The Triumph of Love
Gender-bending, erotic and sexually-charged, this is the 18th Century equivalent of a Joe Orton comedy A young princess, conscious that her claim to the throne is less than honourable, disguises herself as a man in order to dupe her enemies and persuade the rightful ruler to return. A faithful and vivid translation by Braham Murray and Katherine Sand.

The Game of Love and Chance
A pair of prospective lovers each swap places with their servants, while their relatives, fully apprised of both deceptions, look on in amusement. Neil Bartlett's adaptation finds inventive modern equivalents for Marivaux's ludic theatricality and its roots in the Commedia dell'Arte.



Cast : The Triumph of Love - 4M, 3F / The Game of Love and Chance - 4M, 2F
