The Literati
after Moliere's Les Femmes Savantes
Justin Fleming

‘A learnéd fool is more of a fool than an ignorant fool can be.’

Juliet and Clinton are in love. Guileless, sweet, all-encompassing love. However, love is not without its impediments. Standing in the way of their eternal happiness are Juliet’s mother and sister, whose disapproval is of the most high-brow kind.

Justin Fleming has audaciously brought Moliere’s Les Femmes Savantes ( The Learned Ladies) screaming into the 21st century and created a sassy, Sydney story filled with linguistic dexterity, wit and rhyme.

Cast : 6F, 3M doubling possible
