This month we are tackling a real French legend with the movie Molière by Laurent Tirard (2007).

In 1657, playwright/actor Molière, having been given a theater in the capital by the King, is back in Paris after touring the kingdom of France with his company of players. One day, a young lady asks him to follow her to the deathbed of her mother… Thirteen years earlier, Molière already runs a troupe but goes broke and is thrown to prison. Fortunately (?) his debt is covered by Monsieur Jourdain, a rich man who wants him to help him rehearse a one-act play he has written with a view to seducing a beautiful bright young widow, Célimène.

Expect an enjoyable a modern take on a short episode of the life of Molière, not a biopic, not a dusty reconstitution but lively and clever take on the spirit of the plays of Molière

As usual be there for 5.45 to enjoy the buffet before the movie starts. Contact us on 875655 or on [email protected] to book your seats.
