    We plan on doing The Learned Ladies as our main production(upper class men-high school). But would like to compliment our ensemble production thematically.  Any suggestions for a large cast marriage?

    Great choice! (Moliere's 400th birthday is January 2022!) I've put together 17 rhyming adaptations of Molière's plays, most of which I've also edited down into 40-50 minute versions for one-act/competition options. You can find info on those at www.moliere-in-english.com . My personal choice would be to match "Learned Ladies" with "The School for Wives." It demonstrates that Molière, an equal-opportunity satirist, was quite willing to make fun of both the men AND the women of his time!

    I should also mention that I'm happy to share perusal copies of any of the plays on my site.

    Break a leg!
