The School For Wives
By Moliere | Translation by Richard Wilbur
A masterful and timeless comedic farce with a modern perspective on marriage. Moliere, one of the great comic writers in theatre history, here satirizes the persistent ridiculous attitudes towards women. Fearing cuckoldry above all else, Arnolphe, a middle-aged rich man, has painstakingly trained the guileless Agnes, his ward from childhood, to become his obedient and faithful wife. Ah, but, as said, the best laid plans often go astray! And there’s plenty of laughs in this fool’s errand!
Arnolphe - Kevin Firnstahl
