The Dispute

by Marivaux
Translated by Niel Bartlet
Directed by Jeremy Skidmore

November 2003

In adjacent apartments, three ambitious neighbors come together to discuss, flirt, argue, share their dreams, all the while pushing the limits of their friendship and demonstrating that language can be both an instrument of intimacy and a weapon of defense. By exploring these questing lives in language that alternates between exhilarating structural inventiveness, loony comedy, and poignant self-analysis, Melissa James Gibson has created a unique play that is as witty and wise as it is stylistically groundbreaking and unexpected.

What They Say

“For his sweet if slight production for Theater Alliance, director Jeremy Skidmore turns the black box space at H Street Playhouse into a somewhat gymnastic Romper Room…”
