“Love! Does love do away with logic?”
The Marquise is inconsolable after the death of her husband. And when he is rejected by his beloved, the Knight’s life becomes sheer torment. The mutual attraction they feel from their very meeting will turn their lives upside-down, like a bolt from the blue. They will fear what they feel and call it friendship, but the emotion will quickly escape their control and turn into love. At their sides, their two servants drive the plot forward with their playful intrigues and a heavy dose of naivety, forever undoing what they seek to do and making the audience laugh with their spontaneity and the light-heartedness and flexibility their position permits.
