The Game of Love and Chance

Marivaux's 1730 comedy. Silvia’s father, Mr Prowde, is keen to marry her off - and has invited an eligible young bachelor to the family home for the weekend. However, Dorant, the beau in question, has decided that he’d like to take a look at his intended in disguise - and so swaps places with his manservant. Unbeknownst to him, though, Silvia has had a similar idea - and exchanges clothes with her maid.
Author Pierre Carlet de Marivaux

Production details

And so begins a Sixties house party where nothing - and no-one - is to be taken at face value. In this hilarious version of one of the most celebrated 18th-century comedies - which premiered at the National Theatre - the setting in quintessentially English, and the stakes are unmistakably high. Neil Bartlett’s other translations of Marivaux plays include The Dispute (RSC) and The Island of Slaves (Lyric Hammersmith).
