LISETTE HAS DECIDED TO THROW HER MISTRESS THE MARQUISE INTO THE ARMS OF A CERTAIN KNIGHT, so that she herself can marry the man she loves. But the Marquise is inconsolable following the death of her late husband one month after their wedding. For his part, the Knight is infinitely inconsolable over the infidelity of his lover, Angélique. Ruses, blunders, jealousies and denials are all obstacles delaying the ultimate declaration of love.

“In my home, love is at war only with itself and ends up happy in spite of itself.“

- Pierre de Marivaux
