Past Seasons

The Suitors & A Doctor in Spite of Himself

by Jean Racine, Trans. by Richard Wilbur

Performed in the Winter 2011

Out first full-fledged comedy at the Courthouse! À la mode de Molière, Jean Racine’s riotous rhyming verse romp provides ample opportunity for disorder in the court, ambling iambically from the sacred to the profane. Few escapes the writers’ comic wrath as translator Richard Wilbur aids in hazing both the legal profession and the lawsuit-happy litigants who keep the judges well bribed, the lawyers well heeled, and the audience, well, in stitches. C’est un tort meringue!
