Alliance Française Play: Molière 2.07:00 p.m.Alliance Française Play: Molière 2.0
Lifting the plot essentials from Le Médecin malgré lui and Le Médecin volant, this light, original homage to Molière draws almost all its lines from another dozen or so of his best-loved plays. Siblings Angélique and Cléante love Valère and Mariane, but their grasping parents Géronte and Frosine plan to marry them off instead to wealthy aristocrats the Vicomte de Villebrequin and the Marquise de Mirepoix. Wily domestics Scapin and Toinette disguise themselves as doctors to help their young master and mistress. A slapstick comedy of errors and alas enemas. Enthusiastically performed in French prose and verse as the Club Théâtre's ninth annual French-language production. Performed in French, English synopsis provided.

    Cost:

  • $10 / $8 for museum and Alliance Française members / Free for students with ID.
