Brehmer Theater, Dana Arts Center
November 3–5 at 8 pm, Nov. 5 and 6 at 2 pm
Directed by Simona Giurgea, the University Theater Program presents Successful Strategies, a brisk and sophisticated comedy written by Pierre Carlet de Chamblain de Marivaux and translated by Timberlake Wertenbaker.
With elegance, whimsy, and buzzing energy, the play examines the ambiguity of love and the hardship of self-quest. Encumbered by deception, deceit, connivance, and self-delusion, the characters — masters and servants living in a sheltered world of social immobility — experience bewildering emotional change.
