Overview

Lust and avarice trample on the finer feelin's of love in this subversive take on'sexual manners and the cruelties of courtship. The man thin's that marriage is simply a matter of money and property. But just how far should the woman go to prove him wrong? A world of darker meaning lies beneath the wit and verbal exuberance of Martin Crimp's translation of Marivaux's great comedy.
