Harpsichord played by Gordon Langford
BBC Radio 3 31/10/1984

PlotEdit

The first performance of this translation was at the Lyric Theatre, Hammersmith in 1983.
Marivaux's classic comedy is set among the pre-Revolutionary French bourgeoisie and its satire on the manners
of the time is biting. Here is a class for whom money speaks louder than love and even lechery must take a
back seat if an inheritance is in the balance. The story hinges on unsuitable passion and how to consummate
it against the odds, while its subtext - servants controlling their masters - accounts for much of its
post-revolutionary popularity.
