BWW Review Part 1: THE LITERATI at SBW Stables Theatre
by Brodie Paparella - Jun 6, 2016

The pursuit of an original idea is the most fruitless of our generation, it might perhaps be pertinent to say, as it is inferred in Justin Fleming's The Literati which itself is modernised after Moliere's 17th century comedy 'Le Femmes Savantes'. Premiered to the world at The Stables by a partnership of Griffin Theatre Company and Bell Shakespeare, what we have here is riotous, irreverent and cheesy good fun. We enter into the salon, exquisitely designed by Sophie Fletcher to dynamic effects, and are introduced to two polarised sisters. The younger, Juliet, seems set to marry Clint, the former lover of the elder Amanda, who spurned him in favour of intellectual pursuits in the image of their mother. Amanda and her mother oppose the coupling, due to their investment in the odious poet Tristan as suitor for Juliet, utterly manipulated by his pretentious prose. A domestic war is waged between sincerity and scholastics, and all done in Fleming's verse to seemingly effortless comedic effect. (more...)
