by Molière translated by Justin Fleming.
‘Going to the chapel and we’re gonna get…’
Bell Shakespeare returns to the Q with Justin Fleming’s new translation of Molière’s comedy The School for Wives
Falling in love is never easy. Take Moliere’s hero for instance. He’s a guy who wants desperately to get married but is afraid that a smart woman will cheat on him. His ingenious solution? Enlist the help of a local convent to raise a girl so stupidly innocent that she won’t know the first thing about cheating. In his mind she will be ever-faithful. The perfect wife. Or is she?
Following on from her success with ‘Twelfth Night’, Lee Lewis directs this fresh new translation from Justin Fleming of Molière's comedic train-wreck of a love story that tangles innocence with arrogance and the other way around.
Groups 10 + $42
