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 new version of Marivaux's great comedy.
