The Game of Love and Chance
By Pierre Carlet de Chamblain de Marivaux
Translated and adapted by Stephen Wadsworth
Directed by Janet Morrison
November 12-22, 2009
Set on a countryside estate in 18th-century France, this stylish romantic comedy is as delightful as it is provocative. The beautiful, young Silvia wants to know more about the man her father has chosen for her to marry, so she trades places with her maid when the handsome Dorante comes a-courting. Little does she know that her intended has similar concerns. Mistaken identity leads to class conflicts and emotional confusion as Marivaux demonstrates -- with wit and charm -- that the heart has a mind of its own.
