THE SCHOOL FOR WIVES
2/20/2015 to 3/29/2015

DTC launches a new multi-year Classical Theater initiative with this sublime comedy, in a high-energy production directed by Kevin Moriarty. Combining Molière’s razor-sharp observations about love, marriage and desire with hilarious physical comedy and joyful contemporary music, The School for Wives tells the story of Arnolphe, who believes he has shrewdly concocted the perfect plan to woo a much younger woman to be his wife. (SPOILER ALERT: Arnolphe isn’t all that shrewd). As his plan goes horribly wrong and the complications add up, this fast-paced French farce will keep you on the edge of your seat, wondering what you may have missed while you were rolling in the aisle laughing.

This was absolutely delightful and I am telling everyone to go see it. The translation, the acting, the set, the direction, and the comfort of Kalita came together for a wonderful evening of entertainment! Farce is actually harder to pull off than drama, everyone did their part well, but Ferguson did a masterful job!

Really enjoyed the show! I absolutely loved how every actor was into their character! I loved the music choices and the pie throwing. It was very funny :) Thanks for your hard work :D

Loved the play. The actor of Arnolphe was simply wonderful, especially with his actions and facial expressions.

Wonderful production--the cast has both the verbal dexterity to handle the verse and the physical dexterity to handle the commedia style humor.
