A look at “School of Wives”:

Desiring marriage but deeply afraid of infidelity, Arnolphe has devised a cunning scheme to keep his young fiancé and longtime ward Agnes faithful to him: keep her in total ignorance of the world.

In this acclaimed comedy by Molière, Arnolphe’s paranoia and controlling nature soon backfire as Agnes discovers Horace.

Can young love overcome Arnolphe’s oppressive scheme? This rhyming French comedy presented with an all-female cast answer with hilarious results.
