The School For Wives
- State Theatre Centre, WA
Translated by Justin Fleming
Directed by Lee Lewis
Touring nationally from June – November to 27 regional and capital cities.
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?
Following on from her success with Twelfth Night, director 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.
