Two friends, Octave and Léandre, have each married for love young women of unknown births and social classes. And this without the consent of their fathers! Scapin, a cunning and generous valet, returns to the stage to help youth and true love triumph.

In a frenzied rhythm, a troupe of five actors, musicians and singers stage one of Molière’s funniest plays. A classic comedy revisited in music in the spirit of La comedia dell’arte.

It is a bright example of the young, collective-minded ensembles that have sprung up in France in recent years.”


Emmanuel Besnault ou Manuel Le Velly, Matthieu Brugot, Victor Duez, Benoit Gruel and Chloé Zufferey
