Written and first performed in 1662, Molière’s first great verse play follows Arnolphe’s ill-fated attempts to cultivate the perfectly subservient wife. His scheme to wed his young ward and rule the roost is threatened by nothing less than true love. This drag production is a contemporary take on the questions Molière raised in the seventeenth century about gender, power, romance, and relationships.
