"Ms. Thomas' previous and similar rollicking version of Moliere's Les Femmes Savantes delighted audiences off-Broadway in 1991, in a production starring Jean Stapleton as Philamente, a blossoming literary lady on the verge of coming into her own. It was re-imagined in 1993 at ACT in San Francisco, with many productions throughout the country since then. During the Salon movement of the 17th century, women, thirsty for knowledge and freedom, began to read, discuss and absorb all the learning they could now get their hands on. Frequently, into that mix came sycophants and opportunists, to take advantage of the budding but not fully formed intelligence of the Women's Movement. Enter Trissotin, a mediocre poet with a lot of sex appeal and little literary talent, who all but seduces Philamente, determined to be at the forefront of the movement. Equally determined to marry him off to her younger daughter (who just wants to marry her sweetheart Lycandre and raise children), she bullies her meek husband into tacitly agreeing, and the machinations that follow between family members, visiting poets and maids who refuse to learn proper French are predictably and delightfully Molière. This version strays from a strictly literal translation of the play, often employing anachronisms in the rhymed couplets that may appall purists, but have delighted audiences since its original inception. In this new version, there are 6 women and 4 men, and the familiar "Voice of Reason", present in almost every Moliere play and always a male, is now, for the first time, FEMALE! If you want your audiences to roll with laughter as they recognize their hilarious selves in the midst of a "Feminist culture," this version is for you"--Information provided by publisher
Don Juan : comedy in five acts, 1665 by Molière( Book )

695 editions published between 1665 and 2016 in 17 languages and held by 3,294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Long ago in Sicily, the legend of Don Juan began. In this, Moliere's version of the tale, richly translated by Richard Wilbur, we meet Don Juan again. He is a man who appreciates beauty wherever and whenever he sees it - and beauty is almost always a pretty woman, and he appreciates her by winning her love. Don Juan is on a constant quest to conquer women and to enjoy the passion they provoke. He is accompanied , somewhat reluctantly, by his manservant sganarelle, who backs him up to the public, but behind his back tries to warn unsuspecting maidens. Sganarelle and Don Juan constantly debate the presence of Heaven, Hell and God - Don Juan believing none of these things exist, Sganarelle knowing otherwise. In the course of his attempted seductions, Don Juan is chased and challenged by those he has wronged in the past - or by their very angry brothers whose job it is to uphold family honor. In the end, Sganarelle wins the debate when Don Juan, heeding no warnings as to his behavior and how it affects his afterlife, is swallowed up by the Earth and sent to Hell. He's got his due, leaving behind a world of broken-hearted women and unpaid wages to Sganarelle"--P. [4] of cover

"Lover's quarrels (1656) was Molière's second full-length play in verse, and it is a comedy animated by deception and misunderstanding. A young woman (Ascagne) has worn masculine disguise since childhood, for the sake of an inheritance that would otherwise go to the household of young Valère. Ascagne loves Valère, who is a suitor of her sister Lucile, and cleverly manages to marry him in a midnight ceremony, Valère believing that his veiled and unseen bride is Lucile. Valère's manservant Mascarille is similarly deceived and, under pressure, conveys his misinformation to Éraste, a young man who jealously loves Lucile and is loved in turn by her. The ensuing quarrel between Éraste and Lucile lasts until the fourth act, and is paralleled by the quarreling and reconciliation of Gros-René (Éraste's valet) and Marinette (Lucile's maid)"--P.
