Pierre de Marivaux’s Triumph of Love
Stephen Wadsworth, director
Arthur Makaryan, assistant director
Adapted by Stephen Wadsworth from the play by Pierre Carlet de Chamblain de Marivaux.
Marivaux’s 1732 comedy refines the commedia dell'arte style with wit and substance and more than a little cross-dressing. Princess Leonide falls for Prince Agis and dresses as a male philosophy student to gain access to his household. While there, she manages to become engaged to marry much of the household. A hilarious and painful comedy about gender, love, and political machinations.
