Encore: “The Learned Ladies” presented by Theatre Northwest

Ron Houston Center for the Performing Arts, Mary Linn Auditorium

Sunday, April 9, 2017 @ 2:00 pm

Henriette is in love with Clitandre, a perfect match approved by her bourgeois father, Chrysale. But Chrysale is overruled by his domineering wife, Philaminte, who has plans for Henriette to marry another – the pompous, preening Trissotin, a fraudulent poet intent on stealing the family’s fortune. Moliere’s madcap farce – full of physical humor, silliness and enormous wigs – satirizes the pretentious salon movement of the late 17th Century. Written in 1672, this restoration comedy was one of Moliere’s most popular plays, and remains a classic favorite among theatre-goers today.

Tickets are $10. Theatre Northwest presents this production in collaboration with Northwest's Encore performance series.
