The Will

by Marivaux
in a translation by Michael Sadler.

According to the terms of the Will, The Marquis stands to inherit 600,000 francs! Unfortunately for him, not even the dead acquiesce such sizeable fortunes without a quid pro quo. In this case, a marriage. Though his heart is set on the beautiful and shrewd Countess, The Marquis must marry the cold and cunning Hortense, or a third of his fortune is forfeit. The two cannot stand each-other and though neither party wishes to wed, neither wish to lose the money. While the Marquis fumbles at the feet of the widowed Countess, Hortense and her devoted admirer, The Chevalier, hatch a Machiavellian plan to win their share of the fortune. The Will invites you to a stately country house where scheming servants manipulate their masters and gossip fills the halls. After a sold out performance at the Crescent Theatre Birmingham, don't miss its London debut!

'Hugely enjoyable, this production tickles and amuses.' – William Stafford, Bum on a Seat
