The Learned Ladies by Molière

The learned ladies by Molière,  a staged reading directed by Lucie Tiberghien, with the translation by Pulitzer Prize winner Richard Wilbur.  will be played at the Picnic House, Prospect Park. 


The Story:

In Henriette’s household, two epic wars rage; one between the sexes and one between the mind and the body.  Sisters, mothers, fathers, uncles, lovers, pretentious fools, and dangerous ones too, all have fallen prey to their own extreme beliefs. Will sanity and reason return and allow peace to spread its wings, once again? We may not know until we sink to the bottom and back.

Produced by Molière in the Park and in Partnership with LeFrak Center at Lakeside and Prospect Park Alliance.
