About this show

Master playwright David Ives (Venus in Fur, All in the Timing) reinvigorates Jean-François Regnard's 1708 comic masterpiece. Eraste desperately wants to marry Isabelle, but first he needs to secure an inheritance from his decrepit old uncle, Geronte – who refuses to die and schemes to marry Isabelle himself. Can Eraste's resourceful servant save the day with his quick wit and powers of disguise? Love, greed, and intrigue combine to make this a hilarious French farce that shouldn't be missed.
