Marius

by Marcel Pagnol

directed by Peter Dobbins

 

The Storm Theatre is proud to present the New York Premiere of MARIUS by Marcel Pagnol, translated from the French and adapted by Zack Rogow! Eighteen year old Fanny, the most beautiful girl in Marseille, loves the handsome twenty-two year-old Marius who daydreams away while working at his father's Bar de la Marine. He secretly returns Fanny's ardour, but resists her advances, yearning to go Elsewhere, to a life at sea full of adventure. However, fifty year-old Panisse, a recent widower and wealthy sailmaker, has proposed to the young Fanny. She wants Marius, but if Marius does not want her, she will give up romance and marry for security. With Panisse she'd have a maid and 100,000 francs! The ball is in Marius's court... What ensues is one of the great romances of the past century bursting with passion, warmth, humor, all the yearning and passion of youth and the wisdom of age. Marcel Pagnol was one of the leading French dramatists of the last 100 years. Of the many plays he wrote, MARIUS is considered his masterpiece. The play is the cornerstone of Pagnol's Marseille trilogy. MARIUS has been adapted as a movie several times, most recently by the great French actor Daniel Auteuil, in a soon-to-be-released remake.
