The New York Classical Theatre will offer a free presentation of Playing Moliere, three one-act intertwining Molière comedies, February 21-March 11 at the Winter Garden in the World Financial Center. Stephen Burdman will direct the production.

The plays include Two Precious Maidens Ridiculed, a devastating satire of snobbishness in which a pair of rejected suitors enact revenge on the objects of their unrequited affections; The Forced Marriage featuring the protagonist of the previous play as a middle-aged man beset with doubts about his impending marriage to a beguiling young woman; and Sganerelle or The Imaginary Cuckold, the story of a husband who mistakenly questions his wife's fidelity while, at the same time, failing to defend her honor.

The cast will feature Nick Salamone (Molière), Kristin Dawn Calgaro (Armande), Maggie D'Ambrose (Madeline), Ian Antal (Joseph), Brendan McMahon (Du Parc), Anthony Reimer (Hubert), John Michalski (Du Croisy), and Max Waznak (Apprentice).
