The Guardsman

By Ferenc Molnár
New adaptation by Bonnie J. Monte
From a translation by Gábor Lukin
Directed by Bonnie J. Monte 
July 8 – July 26, 2015

A behind-the-scenes portrait of what happens after the curtain falls, The Guardsman takes us into the home of Budapest’s beleaguered leading man and his strong-willed leading lady. This witty, romantic confection, with a deep and provocative center, examines the extreme lengths taken to test a relationship between two artists addicted to a larger-than-life existence.
