Cupid, my dear, can’t be deceived!

This spring imaginary beasts invites you to take a ride on love’s merry-go-round when they present Molière’s rarely performed gem, Lovers’ Quarrels, translated into English verse by Richard Wilbur. Jealous rivalries and merry mix-ups lead a trio of couples astray in this classic tale of deception and intrigue!

Young Ascagne has spent her life in male disguise for the sake of a family inheritance; but when she falls in love with her sister’s rejected suitor, she enacts a bold masquerade that sets off a comical chain of events that changes the lives of everyone around her.

What are you waiting for?  Hop aboard Cupid’s carousel and enjoy the ride!
