By Pierre de Marivaux

Translated and adapted by Stephen Wadsworth

Celebrate Spring-time in Washington with a fresh and flirtatious farce. Folger Theatre presents Pierre de Marivaux’s The Game of Love and Chance, a situation comedy set in 18th-century Paris guaranteed to make your sides ache.  Masters and servants switch places only to find true love in Marivaux’s delicious The Game of Love and Chance. Be tickled pink by a stellar cast, including Ian Merrill Peakes, who The Post calls “a dervish of comic invention…think of Steve Carell in ‘The Office’ – and now imagine him in tights.”
