The Trials of Love


The Trials of Lovetwo plays, classics of French dramatic literature, which in these translations were British premieres. The plays had not been performed in English for over 300 years, not until Cheek by Jowl were bold enough to commission them.

Both plays are about the agonising tangles brought about by love:

The first, Andromache, is by Racine who is a master at depicting the kind of love that can flip over into the opposite, hate, when not requited.

In the second, The Cid, by Corneille, the problem here is when love and parental duty conflict.
