WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

All-female cast. Henriette is in love and wants to marry the handsome Clitandre. But in her overzealous passion for the new intellectual movement, Henriette's mother, Philamente, wants to pair her off with Trissotin, a conniving "scholar" and mediocre poet. Henriette's sister, Armande, is also striving to stop the union, having loved Clitandre herself until she spurned him for intellectual pursuits. Mix in a loony but lovable sister, an exasperated brother-in-law, a couple of mouthy servants, and a father who just wants his tea served in peace and quiet, and voila! The pretensions and excesses of the upper classes are highlighted by Molière's classic wit and wisdom in this rambunctious comedy.
