Thursday 5 March 2015, 7.30PM to 7.30pm 07/03/15

In La Dispute, you sit alongside an aristocratic Prince and his love Hermiane as four orphans become subject to an eccentric social experiment. The Prince aims to put to rest age-old quarrel: who is most likely to be unfaithful first – man or woman? La Dispute engages in the nature vs. nurture debate, bestowing on it a pinch of fairy-tale mystery, and creating a unique combination of the scientific and the fantastical in its quest to determine the chemistry of attraction.

In Les Acteurs, a mischievous play is conducted by the valet Merlin, orchestrated by his devious Mistress, Madame Amelin. However, it is the day of his master’s wedding to the beautiful Angelique. As chaos ensues, the line between performance and reality becomes increasingly blurred. Merlin’s planned masterpiece quickly falls into disarray...Les Acteurs is a play about three couples, two families and a wedding to remember. Confusion and trickery are at the heart of this witty and entertaining translation. It’s time to play your cards, and hope you have the winning hand.
