Annapolis Shakespeare Company returns to Reynolds Tavern with two Molière Classics
In Molière’s The Schemings of Scapin, the brazenly-conniving servant Scapin is the most devious and audacious character you'll ever encounter. Two young men, Octave and Leandre, enlist his help to save them after they pledge marriage to women their fathers wouldn't approve of. Improvising his way through treacherous turns and outrageous misbehavior, Scapin manages to help the two men and their brides, even managing to exact a personal revenge in the process. Written by Moliere, adapted by Timothy Mooney, directed by Sally Boyett. Playing every Tuesday at 7:30pm through July 29th in the Courtyard at Reynolds Tavern.
In Molière’s The Imaginary Invalid, the hypochondriac Argan wants nothing more than to be sick, or at least to be thought of as sick, and tended to by Doctors and Family (notably his scheming wife). His desire for treatment outweighs his judgment, as he tries to set his daughter up to marry an idiot doctor-in-training. Only the brilliant collaboration of the maid, Toinette, with his brother, Beralde, can foil the wife, conquer the doctors, and satisfy Argan. Written by Moliere, adapted by Timothy Mooney, directed by Kristin Clippard. Playing Tuesdays at 7:30pm from August 5th through October 7th in the Courtyard at Reynolds Tavern.
The Schemings of Scapin and The Imaginary Invalid will be presented at the Courtyard at Reynolds Tavern (7 Church Circle, Annapolis, MD 21401) every Tuesday evening at 7:30pm from May 20th through October 7th. “Doors”
