Scapino

By Molière Translated by Jeremy Sams

Drama Classics: The World's Great Plays at a Great Little Price

Written at the height of his powers, Moliere's farce is a masterclass in comic construction.

Two young men have each found the love of their life. Unfortunately their fathers have other ideas. So the boys turn for help to Scapino, king of con-men. But the old men's obstinacy drives Scapino to ever more ludicrous schemes to ensure that love wins the day. 

Translated by Jeremy Sams and introduced by Stephen Mulrine.
