EVENT PAGECAST & STAFF

Summit Rock, Central Park
August 14-16, 21-23 at 6:30pm
Suggested Donation: $10

In an isolated wilderness, a strange experiment plays out…

Four orphans, raised in captivity, are released into the wild to discover the wonders of love, friendship, and lust. Their choices will determine their fates, as onlookers seek the ultimate resolution to an age-old dispute: which sex was unfaithful first?

Watch their hilariously awkward and sweetly heartbreaking encounters play out amidst the lush greenery of Central Park - a spot tailor-made for Marivaux's sexy and subversive comedy. What better way to spend a summer evening, than to enjoy a classic tale of romance (and betrayal) in the great outdoors?

Theatre is Easy Review "...a company doing some noteworthy classical theater work in the city."
