Molière Than Thou

November 1st, 2005 by Adam

The Department of Foreign Languages at Plymouth State University, in conjunction with the New Hampshire Association of World Language Teachers, presents Molière Than Thou, a one-man play borrowed from the plays of Jean Baptiste Poquelin de Molière, created and performed by Timothy Mooney. The program will be held at 7 p.m. Wednesday, November 9 at the Silver Center for the Arts. Tickets are $12/10 at the box office, 535-ARTS.

Molière Than Thou finds Molière left without a cast when all of his fellow performers happen to consume “the same sort of shell fish” at one of the local public inns that the company tends to frequent. Rather than actually refund the precious box office income, Molière offers to perform a “greatest hits” of sorts, and leads the audience (which occasionally participates) through a hilarious succession of favorite speeches that trace his illustrious career.

The New York media exclaimed, “Move over Richard Wilbur, Timothy Mooney is the real deal—a very tight performance which should be seen by any aspiring actor who wants to tread the boards.”
