    A Rehearsal at Versailles

    Who knew that post-modernism existed in the 17th century? Get set for the earliest known self-parodying comedy, A Rehearsal at Versailles, by the famous French playwright, Moliere. For the 3rd year in a row, The Moliere Players bring you "not-just-another" outdoor summer theater production. In this modernized adaptation, Moliere's troupe has 45 minutes to rehearse a play (which Moliere has just written and his players have never read), as a special performance for the King. A series of interruptions and distractions delay what little time they have, driving Moliere into a crazed panic, and leaving him no other recourse but to implore the King for more time. In his usual style, Moliere wittily pokes at everyone he comes in contact with, from the nobility for whom the play was intended, to the critics, rival actors, and the eccentric cast of people in his own acting troupe.
