Zoë brought Marivaux’s quirky comedy into the modern world by interspersing the text with popular songs sung live by the cast. The production was set in a heightened reality that recalled the touring circuses of the 1950s; a world of enthusiasm, energy, broad smiles and sequins which hid a sleazy underbelly.
