Sganarelle at SUNY Ulster

SGANARELLE by Molière, directed by Stephen Balantzian. Nov. 15 - 18, 7: p.m.; Nov. 19, 2 p.m. The greedy and domineering Gorgibus is forcing his daughterCélie to marry the wealthy Valère, but she is in love with Lélie and he with her. Célie, in distress at her impending marriage to Valère, faints in the street, and Sganarelle, who is passing by, attempts to revive her. In the process she loses her miniature portrait of Lélie which ends up in the hands of Sganarelle and his wife. These two events set off a series of mistaken assumptions and quarrelling: Sganarelle’s wife believes that he and Célie are lovers; Sganarelle believes that Lélie and his wife are lovers; Célie believes that Lélie and Sganarelle’s wife are lovers; and Lélie believes that Célie has secretly married Sganarelle. A model Molière farceof misunderstanding and mistaken identity, that grows more tangled with every passing scene.
