Les Femmes Savantes

19:30, 22 Mar

Two young women, Henriette and Clémentine, are in love, but in order to marry, they must overcome an obstacle: the attitude of Henriette's family. While her father and uncle are in favour of the marriage, her father is under the thumb of his wife, Philaminte. And Philaminte, supported by Henriette's aunt and sister, wishes her to marry Trissotine, a "scholar" and mediocre poet with lofty aspirations, who has these three women completely in her thrall. For these three ladies are "learned"; their obsession in life is learning and culture of the most pretentious kind, and Trissotine is their special protégée and the fixture of their literary salon.
