Based on Pierre Marivaux’s 270-year-old, gender-bending confection, Triumph of Love melds the bawdy comic characters of the Italian commedia dell' arte with the satirical antics of a French farce. Its heroine is a crafty princess who holds the throne by ancestral fraud. One day, she spies the rightful prince skinny-dipping in the woods and falls hopelessly in love. The sight of his naked virility drives her to don a masculine disguise and jeopardize her crown, not to mention her skin.
