This version by Martin Crimp was acclaimed at its 2004 National Theatre premiere by The Telegraph: “Thrills, chills, and belly laughs - this addictively adult comedy has got the lot.”
Paul Miller directs, following his acclaimed production of Marivaux's The Lottery of Love.
Martin Crimp's prolific international career began at the Orange Tree Theatre, including our recent revival of Dealing with Clair, a hit of last season.
POST SHOW TALK - Thu 28 May 2.30pm.
Note: This production contains strong language.
When a man thinks he can cynically take a rich woman's money and then run off with an even more lucrative potential fiancée, he'd best not tell the fiancée by mistake.
Le Chevalier, a woman disguised as the son of an aristocrat, embarks on a plan that will expose the dark heart of this male power-play.
