When a man thinks he can cynically take a rich woman’s money and then run off with an even more lucrative potential fiancée, he’d best not tell the fiancée by mistake. Le Chevalier, a woman disguised as the son of an aristocrat, embarks on a plan that will expose the dark heart of this male power-play.
This version by Martin Crimp was acclaimed at its 2004 National Theatre premiere by The Daily Telegraph: “Thrills, chills, and belly laughs – this addictively adult comedy has got the lot.”
As well as in person performances, the production will be livestreamed performance via OT On Screen on Thursday 7 July and available to stream on demand 26-29 July.
The production has design by Simon Daw, lighting design by Mark Doubleday, sound design and composition by Liz Purnell, casting consultant Vicky Richardson and costume supervisor Sarah Frances.
