WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

A Noise Within (ANW), the acclaimed classical repertory theatre company, presents MOLIÈRE's THE BUNGLER, translated by RICHARD WILBUR, a careening cavalcade of wily servants, dim-witted young lovers and avaricious old men. Directed by ANW Producing Artistic Director Julia Rodriguez-Elliott, The Bungler (also known as The Blunderer), which has a very limited production history in the U.S., was Molière's first romp written in verse and was among the hugely popular touring successes that brought the struggling playwright out of exile in the French provinces and into royal favor in the court of Louis XIV. A Noise Within's version of the comedy by eminent Molière translator Richard Wilbur premiered at The Long Wharf in 2000. Noted composer David O, who previously collaborated on ANW's productions of Ubu Roi, Man of La Mancha and Oliver Twist, provides original music and sound design for the production.
