La Comtesse a self-assured member of Parisian high society fends off a list of suitors, who attempt to seduce her with a can-can of flatteries, bad poetry and jealous outbursts. Meanwhile devilishly charming Moliere wannabe playwright, Vicomte seduces La Comtesse with mock adulation and a sneak peak of his new satire, coincidentally, ‘School For Wives Criticised’. How will she react to Vicomte’s cheeky critique that ironically holds up a mirror to the small town world of La Comtesse?
Do not miss this new MFT take on these wonderful plays … in this highly physical production. Featuring slapstick and buffoonery, these brilliant examples of 17th century French wit and ridicule are sure to knock you off your chaise longue.
