Pleasure and Pain

Pleasure and Pain

Maupassant’s perfectly crafted short stories explore social and political upheaval and relationships where men and women spar and dance their way through tales of love, sex, personal tragedy and the need to belong. Playful and funny, unsettling and brutal, Mark Thomson’s adaptation of Maupassant’s stories conjures up a florid and vivid world that reflects Maupassant’s own life and imagination.Originally produced by Mark Thomson for the Citizens Theatre 14 years ago, we are very pleased to tell Guy de Maupassant’s story again."tremendous bonhomie and wit, stirred up with a strongly felt sense of tragedy" The Guardian ★★★★★ (on the original 2002 production)
