I may be your servant in the theatre, but in real life, sweetheart, you are my sex-slave. Just you remember.
Lust and avarice trample on the finer feelings of love in this subversive take on sexual manners and the cruelties of courtship. The man thinks 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 version of Marivaux’s great comedy.
