On Saturday 11th July in the beautiful grounds of Ellenthorpe, Lympstone, by kind permission of Judith and Robin Telfer
The Cygnet Theatre’s production of
THE TRIUMPH OF LOVE
A witty and seductive comedy by the eighteenth century French playwright Pierre de Marivaux. Directed by Alistair Ganley
What is a princess to do when she is in love with the handsome prince who hates her because her father usurped his father’s throne? The answer is simple – dress up as a boy and woo the prince, his tutor and the tutor’s sister who have all renounced love. Enlightenment reason is challenged by those most basic of human instincts – love and desire – in this delightful and playful romp.
Bring your own chairs: the performance will begin at 6pm – but why not come at 5pm and bring a picnic!
Here’s how to get there: head for the village car park in Underhill.
Pedestrian entrance through the gateway beside the stable.
No access from Church Road.
In the Village Hall at 7pm if it’s raining!
