In this new translation of Moliere's comic masterpiece, Arnolphe, a rich merchant, is under the delusion that he can create a perfect marriage by creating the perfect wife. He raises a young orphan, Agnes, in a convent, determined to keep her ignorant of everything except what he intends to teach her himself. His plans, however, are quickly undone by the handsome young Horace who, despite everything Arnolphe tries, takes the education of Agnes into his own hands - particularly in the art of love. "This new translation-adaptation of Moliere by director Frederique Michel and Charles A. Duncombe is clever, colloquial, and far more actable than most recent versions." - Backstage "The central character in Moliere's comedy, newly translated by Frederique Michel and Charles Duncombe, could be and often is a punching bag. But not here... The play emerges less as a clown show, and more as a wistful, almost elegiac rumination on aging and folly." - "Go" LA Weekly
