In a world of high-power political intrigue love has little or no place. Yet Ferdinand and Louise – star-crossed lovers of vastly different social standing and personal beliefs – can not help dreaming about a better world which includes honour, dignity and happiness. Little do they know that their dreams are about to upend the most carefully laid out political plans of their elders and betters – of those who gave up dreaming long ago. Can a corrupt society be changed by love – or does love have to perish amid the intricate self-serving intrigue? It is easy to point fingers and place the blame; it is much more difficult to find a way to balance filial duties and your heart’s desire, political interests and personal attachments, practicability and decency. One of the greatest Schiller’s plays, ”Love and Intrigue” lives on nowadays and keeps asking us the eternal uncomfortable questions – those questions each of us has to answer for himself and live with the answer.
