BY MOLIÈRE TRANSLATED BY JUSTIN FLEMING
The perfect wife, or is she?
Falling in love is never easy. Take our hero for instance. Now here’s a guy who wants desperately to get married but is afraid that a smart woman will cheat on him. His ingenious solution? Enlist the help of a local convent to raise a girl so stupidly innocent that she won’t know the first thing about cheating – let alone the last. In his mind she will be ever-faithful. The perfect wife. Or will she?
Following on from her success with Twelfth Night, director Lee Lewis joins us again to direct this fresh new translation from Justin Fleming of Molière’s comedic train-wreck of a love story that tangles innocence with arrogance – and the other way around.
