Exit 22 Productions kicks off 2019 with an effervescent comedy, and one of Molière’s most popular plays. The Learned Ladies takes delight in satirizing the pretensions of intellectual snobbery.
Set in 17th century France, The Learned Ladies is a fun farce full of flirting, frolicking, flaunting, and festive frivolity. Henriette and Clitandre, two young lovers, wish to wed, but Henriette’s mother, Philamente, conspires with her clique of learned ladies to have Henriette marry the ‘scholarly’ poet Trissotin instead. With Henriette’s father under the rule of his wife despite favouring her match to Clitandre, the stage is set for a battle of the witty and not so witty, all posturing under intellectual pretensions while true love hangs in the balance.
