The Heir Apparent
From the ever-antic pen of David Ives (VENUS IN FUR and THE SCHOOL FOR LIES) comes his latest laugh fest based on Jean-FranÃ§ois Regnardâ€˜s comic masterpiece. Meet young Eraste. He has it all: good looks, a beautiful fiancÃ©e, and a huge inheritance from an ancient uncle. Thereâ€™s just one little problem: the uncle wonâ€™t die and heâ€™s bequeathed his entire fortune to a distant relative. Oh, and did we mention the uncle also intends to marry Erasteâ€™s fiancÃ©e? Whatâ€™s a fine 18th-century fellow to do? What else but enlist the aid of his resourceful servant, Crispin, who could â€œout-Figaroâ€ Figaro.
