In my home, love is at war only with itself and ends up happy in spite of itself.

SYNOPSIS

LISETTE HAS DECIDED TO THROW HER MISTRESS THE MARQUISE INTO THE ARMS OF A CERTAIN KNIGHT, so that she herself can marry the man she loves. But the Marquise is inconsolable following the death of her late husband one month after their wedding. For his part, the Knight is infinitely inconsolable over the infidelity of his lover, Angélique. The task that falls to the mischievous Lisette is not an easy one. Ruses, blunders, jealousies and denials are all obstacles delaying the ultimate declaration of love. Will Lisette overcome the hesitations of lovers meant for each other?

In La Seconde Surprise de l’amour, Marivaux uses comedy to unravel the mysteries of love. The language, rich and beautiful, channels games and unexpected seductions. After Dom Juan and Le Menteur, Joël Beddows continues to explore the joys of deceit and of gallantry in French classical theatre.
