Arnolphe becomes a tyrant lest he become a cuckold. Beneath the light comedy of The School for Wives and its string of hilarious misunderstandings, Molière delivers a tragic character, who falls victim to his own schemes, with Agnès mercilessly giving him the slip as she comes to realise the terrifying power of her innocence.

Using Chryssa Prokopaki’s imaginative translation in decapentasyllabic verse, Ektoras Lygizos continues experimenting with the demanding genre of farce, drawing on a physical theatre style that retains aspects of acrobatic performance and dance. Spinning an archetypal story of rebellion, this production foregrounds the musical qualities of language, with the main action placed at the centre of an energetic universe rich in sounds, imagery and music, bringing performers ‘face-to-face’ with the audience.
