The Would-Be Gentleman

by Jean Baptiste Moliére

 

Synopsis: Molière's beloved comedy features a rising member of the middle class who lusts for social status and higher learning. The strength of the play lies in its rich comic invention and its sure delineation of character. Its underlying themes of social striving, financial greed, and love's ingenuity still resonate.
