The School for Wives
Arnolphe becomes a tyrant lest he become a cuckold. Molière’s classic The School for Wives spins an archetypal tale of female rebellion, packaged as a series of hilarious misunderstandings. Employing Chryssa Prokopaki’s brilliant translation in decapentasyllabic verse, Ektoras Lygizos continues experimenting with the demanding genre of farce, drawing forth the musicality of verse language. At the same time, the director explores the titillating ambiguity of gendered ‘education’ aiming at the ‘correct’ performativity of prescribed gender roles.
