Marriage in Disguise
Moliere's plays transformed the writing of seventeenth century comedy, savagely satirising the Establishment of his day, and surviving only because he had the unwavering support of Louis XIV. His private life was even more controversial than his plays. Did he really tumble in and out of bed with so many beautiful people of both sexes? Did he marry his own daughter? Why did the Church refuse to bury him? Nicholas Dromgoole's play gives us fresh insight into this astonishing creative artist.
