Lovers and Executioners: Swashbuckling Romantic Comedy
$8 - $10*
Take classic swashbuckling, blend it with romance and revenge and season it with an ingenious disguise, and you've got all the elements for the Providence Player's latest comedy production, Lovers and Executioners. The play is an adaptation of a 17th-century Montfleury work by acclaimed playwright John Strand, and was the winner of the Charles MacArthur Award for Outstanding New Play in 1999. This startlingly modern tale about attempted murder and a woman's revenge concerns Bernard, who discovers evidence that his wife, Julie, has been unfaithful. He abandons her on a desert isle, expecting her to die. But she escapes, returns three years later disguised as a man to discover why and seek justice. This clever and lively period comedy combines classic elegance with a resonant contemporary sensibility. See it at James Lee Community Center in Falls Church.
