The School for Wives
Translated by Maya Slater
Directed by Kathryn MacMillan
November 9 - December 9, 2007
Arnolphe, an aging bachelor, has a brilliant plan. Determined to avoid an unfaithful wife, he'll marry a girl too innocent, and too ignorant, to fool him. But in his house of bumbling servants, awakening passions, and open windows for determined suitors, Arnolphe's plan is bound to backfire. Incomparable Molière, the great master of French farce, crafts the swift unraveling of a pompous man's plan to mold the perfect wife.
