Fickle: A Fancy French Farce

Performance Dates

Rising American playwright Meg Miroshnik turns her sharply comic eye on one of the funniest French comedies of the 18th century. What happens to poor Harlequin when he finds himself kidnapped by an all-powerful Prince with designs on his fiancée, the faint-hearted peasant Silvia? Will Harlequin speak truth to power and tell the Prince to go hang? Prepare for disguises, mistaken identities, palace intrigues and improbable romance in this delightful comic romp that ends, of course, in more than one surprising marriage. Directed by Artistic Associate Eleanor Holdridge (I and YouHay Fever).
