La Comtesse Bis by Molière

ONLY 5 performances
04 to 06 May 2017
at the Collingwood College Theatre

in French with English surtitles

Featuring music, commedia dell'arte with MOLIERE's brilliant 17th century French wit in a potent combination ... not to be missed

MOLIERE as the master himself would have wanted it

La Comtesse a self-assured member of Parisian high society fends off a list of suitors, who attempt to seduce her with a can-can of flatteries, bad poetry and jealous outbursts. Meanwhile devilishly charming Moliere wannabe playwright, Le Vicomte seduces La Comtesse with mock adulation and a sneak peak of his new satire, coincidentally, ‘School For Wives Criticised’. How will she react to Le Vicomte’s cheeky critique that ironically holds up a mirror to the small town world of La Comtesse?
