THE TRIUMPH OF LOVE By Pierre Carlet de Marivaux adapted by Stephen Wadsworth directed by Anna Hagan
A splendid translation of a classic Marivaux comedy about love. Written in 1732, it follows a princess as she adopts the dress and prerogatives of a man, invades the retreat of a rationalist philosopher who hates love, and wins the prince of her dreams. Gender confusion is pivotal in the hilarious situations that ensue as the emotional stakes rise. The language is magnificent and the characters fascinating including Marivaux’s adaptation of the witty idiot Harlequin.
