CHANGES OF HEART
by Marivaux, translated by Stephen Wadsworth
Mac Theatre, 5600 Sunshine Drive (near Lamar & Koenig Lane)
Oct 21-31 (Thursdays-Saturdays at 7 p.m, Sundays at 2 p.m.)
Marivaux's fabulous Harlequin pursues his country love Silvia to the palace, where the lovelorn Prince holds her against her will. Flaminia, an intriguer at court, attempts to reroute the affections of both Silvia and Harlequin, whose take no prisoners belligerence is softened and transformed. None expect such huge and costly changes of heart and, at the end of a hilarious day full of wonderment, they and others at court are wounded and ennobled by love.
