School for Wives

Book cover
By: (1622-1673)

In 1661 and 1662 Moliere presented the plays The School for Husbands and then The School for Wives . "The central situations of the two have much in common: the arbitrary and jealous lover to whom circumstances have given almost the authority of a husband: the simple ward rescued from physical constraint by the unfettered cunning of love." In between writing the two plays Moliere got married. Listen to both and see if this comedic genius of the farce changed his attitude. - Summary by ToddHW and The Translator Cast list: Arnolphe, alias Monsieur De La Souche: Peter Tucker Chrysalde, friend to Arnolphe: ToddHW Horace, in love with Agnes: Tomas Peter Enrique, brother-in-law of Chrysalde: Chuck Williamson Oronte, father to Horace and a great friend of Arnolphe: Nemo Alain, a country fellow, servant to Arnolphe: alanmapstone A Notary: Zames Curran Agnes, a young innocent girl, brought up by Arnolphe: Leanne Yau Georgette, a country-woman, servant to Arnolphe: Sonia Stage Directions: Availle Edited By: ToddHW
