FARCE. Adapted from the play by Molière. Misunderstandings, mishaps, and misconceptions abound in this madcap play that has more love triangles than characters! Celia and Lelio are in love and wish to marry, but Celia’s father wants Celia to marry a wealthy gentleman since “gold will make even the most ugly charming.” Meanwhile, Sganarelle, a foolish, cowardly husband, believes Lelio has stolen his wife and reluctantly dons battle armor to defend his honor. However, Sganarelle’s wife suspects Sganarelle has fallen madly in love with Celia. In the end, Sganarelle laments, “Never believe anything, even if you see it with your own eyes!” Accessible and easy to stage, this uproarious play provides an ideal opportunity to introduce the comedic genius of Molière to young actors.
