Scapino by Moliere

Book Description

Comedy masterpiece premieres in new translation at Chichester published in "Drama Classics" series. Two young men have each found the love of their life. Unfortunately their fathers have other ideas. So the boys turn for help to Scapino, king of con men. But the old men's obstinacy drives Scapino to evermore ludicrous schemes to ensure that love wins the day. Written at the height of his powers - with the role of Scapino designed for himself - Moliere's farce is a masterclass in comic construction. This brand new translation premieres this summer on the main stage of the Chichester Festival Theatre, playing from May to September 2005. "Scapino" is published as a Drama Classic alongside the premiere.

Moliere (1622-73) is one of the greatest writers of comedy of all time. Les Fourberies de Scapin dates from 1671 and was one of his last plays. Others include Tartuffe, The Misanthrope, The Miser, and The Hypochondriac; all available in the NHB Drama Classics series.
