About This Show

First performed for King Louis XIV in 1672, The Learned Ladies is a witty satire about intellectual snobbery, hypocrisy exposed and true love made triumphant. Set in a French middle-class household it is the tale of young love complicated by disapproval, jealousy and pretentiousness. The course of true love runs anything but smoothly and, thanks to some careful maneuvering, all is resolved in the end. Guest costume designer Anne Murphy brings all the flair of the period, executed with an outlandish twist.

Presented by students at the University of Colorado at Boulder and directed by CU Faculty member Lynn Nichols. Translated and adapted by Freyda Thomas. Produced by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
