THE GUARDSMAN new adaptation by Bonnie J. Monte now published19 September 2019
A beautiful actress has married her handsome leading man, and their best friend is a critic. A recipe for marital bliss for denizens of the theatre world – until a dashing guardsman enters the scene and starts sending the actress roses. In this new version of The Guardsman, Molnár’s “romantic comedy” finally receives the treatment it deserves as a “comedy of agony.”
Even as this farce poses disturbing questions about identity, voyeurism, reality, perception, the masks we wear, and the pain of love, it elicits gales of laughter.
Its outer comedic shell delights us even as its inner core unsettles our equilibrium with its unanswerable provocations.
We are delighted to license the play throughout the world, in all languages.
