In this biting comedy of errors, the hapless Arnolphe is undone by his own double dealing and double standards. The School for Wives was first performed at the Palais Royal theatre on December 26, 1662, and is considered by many to be Moliere’s masterpiece. Richard Wilbur's subtle verse translation illuminates the great master of comedy at his wittiest.
An L.A. Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring William Brown, Wellesley Chapman, Joe Damour, Kevin Fox, Cheryl Graeff, Judy Greer, Dev Kennedy, Bradley Mott and Larry Yando.
