Eighteenth century France. With an influential aristocrat insistent upon marrying his daughter to a man she does not love (because she has a secret lover of her own), the stage is perfectly set for a fine comedy of intrigue. Once the ardent passion of romantic youth has been thwarted, it takes the wily experience of an older woman, herself no stranger to love, to deal with the situation. Sure enough Eloise, the Marquise of the play's title, not only upsets the matrimonial applecart but also manages to rekindle the embers of a passion of her own.
