This is one of Molière’s best-known comedies (1622-1673), a prose play and in three acts, performed for the first time in Paris in 1671. Strongly marked by the popular and expressionist spirit and expression of the commedia dell’arte. Initially criticized for its aesthetics, considered too popular and even offensive, this comedy would gain enormous popularity after the death of its author, becoming one of the most represented plays in the French theatrical repertoire. The show, staged by João Mota uses the 1962 translation by the Brazilian poet Carlos Drummond de Andrade (1902-1987).
