Based on three short plays by Molière, Molière Impromptu is a wickedly funny look at the magic of theatre.

Set in 1665 Versailles, the play presents a director’s nightmare as the members of Molière’s Illustre Theatre gather to rehearse a new play commissioned by the King for a performance that very night. The script is in horrible shape, the straight man wants to leave the troupe, marital spats are ripping the company apart, the intern is lobbying for a bigger part and the lead actress can never remember her lines.

First performed by Trinity Repertory Company in 2005, the play is a contemporary take on the works of one of the great masters of Western comedy.

Produced by special arrangement with Playscripts, Inc.
