THE SCHOOL FOR WIVES
Written by Moliere; Translation by Maya Slater
Directed by Richard Sautter
“The School for Wives,” written by Moliere in 1662, combines incisive observations about love, lust, and marriage with a wealth of physical comedy. The play details the trials and tribulations of Arnolphe, who believes he has constructed a shrewdly perfect plan to win a much younger woman to be his bride. Can the pompous bachelor’s plans survive rival suitors, incompetent servants, and the sharp wit of his intended bride? This beloved comedy, considered by critics to be one of Moliere’s finest achievements, promises to have everyone laughing out loud!
