The Bungler | [Molière, Richard Wilbur (translator)]

The Bungler

In 17th-century Sicily, a clever valet named Mascarille tries to help his boss, Lélie, win the girl of his dreams – only to find that Lélie is a monumental dunce who ruins every one of his intricate schemes. Undaunted, Mascarille invents progressively wilder plots, only to see his best-laid plans go very awry in Molière’s The Bungler, translated by Richard Wilbur.

Audible Editor Reviews

L.A. Theatre Works provides a first-rate production to Moliere’s first full-length play, a gem overshadowed by his other classics, The Misanthrope and Tartuffe. The cast features movie, television, and stage veterans, including Tony Award winner Richard Easton, and Tony and multi-time Olivier Award nominee Adam Godley. The performances of celebrated translator Richard Wilbur’s vibrant recreation of valet Mascarille’s ever wilder and crazier schemes to help his boss win love bring to life for English-speaking audiences the hilarity, the original rhyming verse construction, and the play’s roots in traditional commedia dell'arte.
