About the Play

The School for Husbands is a play written by Moliere and originally performed in 1661 in Paris. It was the first of his full length plays, preceding The School for Wives by a year. The plot centers around the suitors of two sisters. One suitor, Sganarelle, is controlling and overbearing of his intended wife, Isabella. The other suitor, Ariste, treats his intended wife, Leonor more as an equal. Ariste finds success in his pursued relationship, while Sganarelle fails miserably. So much so, in fact that that he is unwittingly used by Isabella in seeking her preferred courter, Valere.
