Celebrating more than a quarter century of outdoor theatre in Strathcona Park, Odyssey Theatre explores human existence through masks, intense physicality, and vibrant costuming, as well as by weaving text with music, dance, and fairground arts. Originally penned by Enlightenment playwright Pierre de Marivaux, The Game of Love and Chance weaves a madcap tale of mistaken identity and forbidden love. Transposed to France's La Belle Époque by director Andy Massingham, the stage presents two young aristocrats who have not yet met but are engaged to be married as they both—unbeknownst to one another—switch identities with their servants to learn of their betrothed's character. Disguised as nobles, the servants tickle ribs with over-the-top impersonations of genteel behaviour while the engaged aristocrats struggle with their feelings as they grow closer, each believing they have fallen in love with a commoner. There is limited space available for lawn chairs at each show, and light snacks and refreshments are available for purchase or juggling.

Great acting..fun atmosphere
Nancy M. · September 3, 2016
The outdoor theatre was well set up. The decor was impressive and the sound just right. Also well lit. Fun draw for VIP seats. Actors excellent. All in all, a very pleasant experience. Would definitely do it again!

What a fantastic little play, and the venue could not have been better, or the weather. Made for a great outing and birthday gift. I would recommend this play for anyone that needs a laugh and appreciates small plays. Congratulations to the cast, well done.
