About this show

The Game of Love and Chance, a romantic farce by French playwright Pierre de Marivaux, opens the second season of Tysons Corner's 1st Stage Theatre. The production transports the action of the play, written in 1730, to the 1930s. Unwilling to take a chance on an arranged marriage, two intended lovers switch places with their servants in order to size each other up from a less-privileged position. Desire, agony, neuroses, and lust blend with wit, charm, surprise, and farce into romantic comic delight.
