The Guardsman

3 Male, 4 Female

Bonnie Monte from Ferenc Molnar Price: $12.99

A new version of The Guardsman, Molnar’s romantic comedy using a literal English translation by Gabor Lukin, a great-grandson of Molnar

A beautiful actress has married her handsome leading man and their best friend is a critic

This seems to be a recipe for marital bliss for denizens of the theatre world

That is until a dashing guardsman enters the scene and starts sending the actress roses

This "anguished farce" inspired the work of Pirandello and Pinter

Even as it poses disturbing questions about identity, voyeurism, reality, perception, the masks we wear, and the pain of love, it elicits gales of laughter
