“The wonderful romance bewitched me when I was 15 years of age, and its imperceptible heroine would then visit my dreams,” so wrote Vítězslav Nezval about Abbé Prévost’s novel. The heroine’s name was Manon and owing to Nezval’s 1940 dramatisation we can now fret, love with passion and infinitely suffer again and again. The singular story of love, both devoted and inconstant, a story abounding in tense twists and the engrossing world of knights, will be brought to the National Theatre for the very first time, yet it has lost none of its forcibility and power.
