The School for Wives
Arnolphe wants Agnes to be his wife. But instead of treating her as his equal, he sends her to a nunnery, where she’s kept from the outside world and discouraged from developing intellectually. His manipulation backfires, however, after Agnes moves onto the grounds of his estate and falls in love with Horace, the son of one of Arnolphe’s friends. As the farcical tale unfolds, identities are mistaken, schemes unravel, and a young woman proves to be a formidable opponent to a dubious middle-aged man. Though written in the 1600s, this comedic romp by renowned French playwright and rabble-rouser Molière is re-imagined in 1950s France, and stars a wealth of stage and screen actors, including frequent Broadway performer and Orange Is The New Black actor Robert Stanton.
Two River Theater
Since its inception, all the plays that Two River Theater Company has produced have shared a common thread: capturing the human experience. Bridging the gap between players and audiences, their intimate performances have made them a New Jersey treasure, leading to three Theater of the Year awards from the New Jersey Theater Alliance and The Star Ledger, as well as designation as a Major Impact Organization by the New Jersey State Council of the Arts. Giving them space to play along the way are two theaters: the 350-seat Joan and Robert Rechnitz Theater, where six-play subscription seasons and holiday shows unfold, and the 99-seat black box Marion Huber Theater.
