Bell Shakespeare Set for Moliere's THE SCHOOL FOR WIVES in Perth, Now thru July 14


Perth Theatre Trust, State Theatre Centre and Bell Shakespeare have announced a production of The School for Wives by Molière directed by Lee Lewis in a translation by Justin Fleming for five performances tonight, July 11 through July 14, 2012 in the State Theatre Centre, 174-176 William St, Perth.

The cast will be ARNOLDE John Adam, AGNES Harriet Dyer, HORACE Meyne Wyatt, ALAN Andrew Johnston, GEORGETTE Alexandra Aldrich, CHRIS Damien Richardson, HENRI/NOTARY Jonathan Elsom and LAURENCE Mark Jones.

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 is she?

When it comes to theatrical comedy, Molière was the master of French classical farce and "The School For Wives" is one of his most hilarious works.

Following on from her success with "Twelfth Night", Lee Lewis directs 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.
