The Heir Apparent

Stagehouse Theatre
Grossmont College Drive El Cajon

Penniless Eraste is in love with the fair Isabelle, but her mother, Madame Argante, will only permit the marriage if Eraste can show he will inherit the estate of his miserly and rich Uncle Geronte. But old Geronte has also fallen for the fair Isabelle, and plans to marry her today -- leaving her everything in his will and squashing the young love forever. Eraste's wily servant Crispin jumps in, impersonating two brash, disinherited relatives, only to have Geronte die before his will is made. Becoming the old man too, Crispin then dictates a will favorable to his master (and himself, of course), only to find that Geronte ... isn't dead at all! David Ives' adaptation is rich with flowing French couplets and this joyful farce has everything working out in the end. Enjoy The Heir Apparent at El Cajon's Statehouse Theatre.
