AN EVENING OF MOLIÈRE ONE-ACTS Translated by Justin Blum, Directed by Gabrielle Houle

For centuries, the characters of the Italian commedia dell'arte explored the failings and the ideals of humanity in comic form. Molière's witty one-act plays arrange those archetypes into configurations that lampoon the attitudes of his time. In these new English translations of The Precious Maidens Ridiculed (1659) and The Forced Marriage (1664), personal ambitions, societal ideals, wicked deception, and blissful ignorance are the lot of the humorous and touching characters. In this energetic production, you will share their hopes and desires which still have much in common with our own.
