SOLD OUT! Standby only!
The wealthy, middle-aged Arnolphe has a fear of clever women; he believes they are the single cause of men’s downfall. He plans to marry the young and beautiful Agnes. He has made sure she has been raised in absolute ignorance and innocence, away from all worldly things. This, he believes, will assure that he will never find himself in the unbearable position of being a cuckold. However, the handsome (but not too bright) young Horace has plans of his own and seeks Arnolphe’s assistance to elope with Agnes.
Set in the 17th Century, but with a 21st Century attitude, this adaptation is overflowing with outrageous attitudes, dual identities, crafty servants and unbelievable stupidity as they clash for supremacy in Molière’s classic farce.
Directed and adapted by Peter Reid (Pinter X 4, Accidental Death of An Anarchist, Desire).
