Let Me Dream Again
The plot appears to be a variation on the classic Commedia dell'arte plotline. As far as I can make it out, Columbine pushes Pierrette away because she has been drinking and is too crass. The sight of Harlequin approaching, on the other hand, excites Columbine into primping in the mirror. At Harlequin's arrival, the two women dance joyfully at first, but then shift imperceptibly into a mood of sweet seduction. Finally, the two characters begin making out. This is a play about sexuality for sure, but it's one that celebrates sexual union that is light, playful, and equality-based, as opposed to Pierrette's sneaky, sloppy one-sided desire.
The title translates from French as "The departure of Harlequin and Pierrette".
