THE LEARNED LADIES: This short and hilarious romp sees young Henriette absolutely in love with the handsome Clitandre. Her mother, however, thinks otherwise and wants to see her daughter marry the foppish, wit Trissotin, who panders to pretentious ideals and writes awful poetry (loved by the social elites). Will Henriette be forced to obey her mother, or find the path to her true love? Written in complete iambic pentameter, this delightful translation by Timothy Mooney is filled with love, deceit, flattery and (above all) laughs!
