Fresh from her success with Twelfth Night, Lee Lewis directs The School for Wives in a new translation from Justin Fleming of Molière’s comedic train-wreck of a love story that tangles innocence with arrogance – and the other way around. Falling in love is never easy. Take our hero for instance. Now here’s a guy who wants desperately to get married but is afraid that a smart woman will cheat on him. His ingenious solution? Enlist the help of a local convent to raise a girl so stupidly innocent that she won’t know the first thing about cheating - let alone the last. In his mind she will be ever-faithful. The perfect wife! Or is she? Lighthouse Theatre is thrilled to be able to present the premiere of this production by one of Australia’s truly great theatre companies.
