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).
