From the Inside Flap:

In this biting comedy of errors, the hapless Arnolphe is undone by his own double dealing and double standards. The School for Wives was first performed at the Palais Royal Theatre on December 26, 1662, and is considered by many to be Molire's masterpiece. Richard Wilbur's subtle verse translation illuminates the great master of comedy at his wittiest. A Court Theatre co-production. An L.A. Theatre Works full cast performance featuring: William Brown as Arnolphe Wellesley Chapman as Alain Joe Damour as Enrique Kevin Fox as Horace Cheryl Graeff as Georgette Judy Greer as Agnes Dev Kennedy as Oronte Bradley Mott as Chrysalde Larry Yando as Notary Directed by Nick Bowling. Recorded before a live audience a the North Shore Center for the Performing Arts, Skokie in October of 1998.

About the Author:

"Jean-Baptiste Poquelin Moliere (1622-73), the French actor-manager and dramatist, was one of the theatre's greatest comic classics. Inspired by traditions of French farce and the 'commedia dell'arte', he courted controversy with his satiric commentaries on the society of his time and on eternal human foibles, but was saved by the patronage of the 'Sun King' Louis XIV. Born in Manchester in 1959, Ranjit Bolt was educated at Perse School and at Balliol College, Oxford. He worked as an investment analyst and advisor for eight years, before concentrating on theatre translation from the end of 1990. Ranjit Bolt's acclaimed translations for the theatre, many of which are published by Oberon Books, include works by Moliere, Seneca, Sophocles, Corneille, Beaumarchais, Brecht, Goldoni and Zorilla."
