Past Production: The School for Wives

Ian Martin as Horace Senior Ian Martin as Horace

Molière triumphantly returns to the Iona stages with his comic masterpiece about love, marriage, contrivers and deceivers. Arnolphe, a rich merchant, is under the delusion that he can create the perfect marriage for himself by creating the perfect wife. But in his house of bumbling servants, awakening passions, and open windows for determined suitors, Arnolphe’s plan is bound to face some serious opposition. Molière, the great master of French farce, crafts the swift unraveling of a pompous man’s plan to mold the perfect wife.
