Directed by Alistair Ganley                                                        Cygnet Company

A witty and seductive comedy by the eighteenth century master Pierre de Marivaux.

What is a princess to do when she is in love with the handsome prince who hates her because her father usurped his father’s throne?


The answer is simple – dress up as a boy and woo the prince, his tutor and the tutor’s sister who have all renounced love.


Enlightenment reason is challenged by those most basic of  human  instincts – love and desire - in this delightful and playful romp.
