The Great Seduction

Sundays, 2 p.m. Continues through Nov. 18

The great Alexandre Dumas began his writing career in the theater as a dramatist, with the occasional comedy as well. His Mademoiselle de Belle Isle was a five-act farce about lovers and a seduction contest. Vladimir Zelevinsky has loosely adapted and condensed the story down to a more manageable length in the two-act comedy, The Great Seduction. It's about a duke and countess who are paramours (but not exclusive), and Gabrielle, a fresh country girl just arrived in Paris. The duke is immediately taken with her, while the countess has set her sights on the handsome Raoul. Incensed by the young competitor's presence, the duke bets Raoul he can seduce the first woman he sees. Care to guess who shows up? (It's Raoul's fiancee, Gabrielle.) West End Players Guild presents the bedroom farce The Great Seduction at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday (November 9 to 18) at the Union Avenue Christian Church (733 North Union Boulevard; www.westendplayers.org). Tickets are $20 to $25. $20-$25
