    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.

    Razor-sharp wit inflames a competitive game of survival in the salons of 17th century France where, in this world of "finest appearances," one man's blunt honesty shatters his society's delicate web of manners. Often considered to be Moliere's Hamlet, this is a wickedly scathing satire.

    This timeless comedy of manners is considered one of Molière’s most probing and mature works. While it’s still an exemplar of 16th-century farce, Molière went beyond his usual comic inventiveness to create a world of rich, complex characters, especially in the cynical title character Alceste, played here by the Tony Award-winning actor Brian Bedford.

    Représentées pour la première fois au théâtre du Palais-Royal le 12 mars 1672, "Les femmes savantes" fut un succès, car le registre de La Grange indique que, de cette date au 5 avril, la comédie fut jouée onze fois avec des recettes satisfaisantes. Si, avec "Les femmes savantes", Molière a atteint un degré de perfection qu'il ne pouvait plus dépasser, c'est qu'il s'y efforça avec obstination ; autant pour prendre sa revanche de tant d'ouvrages faciles que le caprice royal l'avait contraint à "bâtir sur l'heure", que pour confondre ses détracteurs qui l'accusaient de "bâcler"...!

    La scène est à Paris, dans le salon de Célimène, jeune et jolie veuve. La critique et les gens de goût l'accueillirent avec beaucoup plus de ferveur que le public. Pourtant de nos jours, l'on considère cette pièce comme un des plus purs joyaux de la scène française.
